Established in 1996, the Charles A. Becker Foundation (CABF) purpose states, “to continue the benevolent spirit of Charles A. Becker, a gentleman who cared about and supported child causes throughout his life.” Charles frequently said while creating the Foundation, “For the benefit of young people who work to get ahead.”
CABF annually awards financial grants to child and youth direct benefit programs of charitable organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. A motivation of CABF is supporting individual success in education, with a focus on kids in the middle. CABF responds favorably to programs which help develop self-confidence, health and wellness, and guidance toward meaningful paths of purpose and fulfillment. A primary objective is to contribute towards initiatives that increase high school graduation rates. Yet an intrinsic vision is to financially invest in supporting life-directing and personally affirming opportunities that help develop individuals that thrive.
