What Others are Saying
“The Vulcan Materials Company Foundation has been a proud supporter of the IDEALS Foundation’s Leadership Programs for several years. IDEALS is addressing a very important need in the lives of these young people and the schools they attend. The quality of the program’s content is exceptional and the students really get engaged. Jack Williams keeps us updated throughout the year on what’s happening with the programs and even includes us in the distribution of his IDEALS Moments messages that are sent to former students each month. Jack also shares with us testimonials that are sent to him by students to let us see the impact IDEALS is having in their lives. They serve as a compelling reminder why we continue to support IDEALS in their efforts.”
Danny Shepherd, Vice Chairman
Be an “IDEALS Teammate”
Help us reach our goal of impacting young people across the country. Our IDEALS Leadership programs are made possible through the generosity and support of individuals, corporate citizens, foundations and athletes who believe in our mission. As we pursue the vision to expand IDEALS programs across the country, we rely exclusively on the support of influential leaders and organizations like you. In return, you’ll gain the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference in the lives of young leaders and those they influence for years to come. There is no IRS form that can put a value on that!
The student athletes that participate in these programs benefit by IDEALS helping them take their leadership skills to the next level and lead more effectively on their teams, their schools and in their lives. As students complete our proprietary curriculum, they have the desire, courage, confidence and new skills to harness their potential, step forward and excel.
Your investment in these young people now will reflected in their teams, schools, businesses, families and their communities for years to come.
Endowment Goal: $5 Million
Building a strong endowment will ensure that funding for all participating young people is available and will provide a solid foundation for future IDEALS programs and expansion initiatives.
