The mission of the foundation is “To get the kids off the streets of Livingston Manor” – and to the extent that we have funds available from earnings and capital gains, as designated by the Board of Directors, to meet the needs of Livingston Manor first, and then if resources are available, to extend the same to our neighboring communities. This means providing funds for education to individuals in the arts and sciences and especially in the trades. It also means supporting programs like afterschool activities, educational support, competitions, recreational facilities, etc. We should fund projects that are supplemental, and not within the realm of responsibilities of the schools or other governmental agencies. With our limited resources, we must restrict ourselves to assistance which is vital to the individual or activityconcerned: that is, without our help, it would not take place.
