Andre Agassi Foundation For Education

Founded in 1994, the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education is dedicated to transforming U.S. public education through its tuition free public charter school, the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy.  The Foundation strives to provide youth in the historical West Las Vegas neighborhood with a quality K-12 education to prepare for excellence in college and beyond. Through state and national advocacy, the Foundation also works to increase investment and accountability in public schools.
At the heart of the Foundation are the following core beliefs:
·       Every child deserves an outstanding academic experience
·       Investment in resources and accountability for public schools is essential
·       Teachers, administrators and parents all have a responsibility to help kids succeed.
Since the inception of the Foundation, over $185 million dollars has been raised to benefit the mission of the Foundation including $118 million from the Grand Slam for Children fundraising event. Over the past 20 years, we have provided in excess of $70 million to support ongoing programming at Agassi Prep and the Andre Agassi Boys & Girls Club, as well as other causes that help children in Southern Nevada. Currently, the money we raise helps underwrite Agassi Prep’s operating budget and sustain the Foundation’s work to impact education and educational policy on a local and national level.
With education, there is hope.

Children For Tomorrow

Founded in 1998, Children for Tomorrow is dedicated to the psychological rebuilding of children affected by war, violence and persecution.  The Foundation provides specialized therapy to help heal the deep emotional scars caused by a daily life marked with violence.
According to the UNHCR there are currently 50 million people on the run worldwide.  Almost half are children or adolescents.  Many flee on their own through human traffickers; often experiencing further cruelty.  Some have lost parents or relatives and suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, insomnia and nightmares.  Our therapist can help them process these terrible experiences.
Since 2011, Children for Tomorrow’s headquarters have been on the grounds of the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf, which serves both as an outpatient clinic and coordination for all projects worldwide.  Contributions to Children for Tomorrow provide psychotherapeutic treatment as well as psycho-social services.  The Foundation aims to promote the psychological reconstruction of these children to give them a chance for a better future.
We heal the inner wounds.

Funded in 1963 in accordance with the wish of the Princess Grace of Monaco, AMADE is based on a vision: the vision of a world where every child, whatever his social, religious or cultural origins are, would have the capacity to live with dignity and security, his fundamental rights fully respected.
To achieve this goal, AMADE actively commits to the protection and blossoming of worldwide children.
The funding bases of AMADE's involvement are the Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) adopted by the United Nations in 1989, and the Millenium Declaration adopted in 2000 by the international community to fight against poverty.
AMADE contributes to implement these commitments through the following missions:
·       To protect the most vulnerable children from violence, exploitation and abuse.
·       To promote blossoming of children by contributing to access to education and health.
·       To accompany changes through plea initiatives.

Jump Charity

Jump Charity was founded in 2013 to raise money for Children’s Hospital LA.
Their first major fundraising event was a horse show held last year in September at San Pascual Stables and raised over $20,000 that was donated directly to CHLA. The show was such a success that the founders and organizers of that event decided to get together and form Jump Charity, a non profit organization that will dedicate its time and effort to children’s causes across the greater Los Angeles area.
Initially founded to raise money for CHLA, the group now offers its services to many different organizations with the consistent goal of helping children and children's causes. Their motto is to help make a difference one jump at a time.

Thrive Animal Rescue

Founded in 2014, Thrive Animal Rescue is a non-profit rescue organization whose mission is to rescue dogs from Southern California’s most overcrowded and underfunded shelters, and place them into loving homes. The brainchild of longtime equestrian Cece Bloum, Thrive Animal Rescue has teamed up with friends from the equestrian community who are committed to making a difference for animals in need. 
The money they raise pays for food, medical care, spay, neuter, supplies, and housing for these at-risk dogs. Their primary goal is to rescue dogs from high risk shelters, get them their necessary medical attention and place them in a suitable home. Their secondary goal and focus for 2015 is to reach out to the shelters with whom they work and provide financial assistance to senior pet owners who can no longer afford to keep their pets. Their Sponsor-A-Senior program is a collaborative effort between Thrive Animal Rescue and local shelters which will help prevent pets from having to suffer the trauma of being surrendered to a shelter. 
Many of their dogs are considered unadoptable due to age or chronic medical problems. They rely on the support of their generous donors to defray the cost of their medical expenses. If you can't adopt a dog, please consider sponsoring a dog in need.
