Established in 1996, the Charles A. Becker Foundation was created to support kids. The organization purpose states, “continuing the benevolent spirit of Charles A. Becker, a gentleman who cared about and supported child causes, though he had no children of his own.” Charles created his Foundation to, “Benefit young people who work to get ahead.”
The Foundation annually awards financial grants to child and youth focused direct benefit charitable programs located in the San Francisco Bay Area. A primary motivation of the Foundation is supporting individual success in education for students who strive, and may need a boost. The Foundation responds to programs which help develop student self-confidence, their health and wellness, and aid to guide them toward personally meaningful paths of purpose and fulfillment. A primary objective is contributing to initiatives that increase high school graduation rates. Yet our intrinsic vision is to financially invest in providing life-directing and personally affirming experiences that help build individuals that flourish.
