CrediTrust Fiduciary Group
CrediTrust Children Trust Foundation is a result of the strong belief of CrediTrust that the prosperity of one individual, one company, or one nation is interdependent with the prosperity of others. By giving, we gain and we help build a sustainable future for the generations to come.
We are committed to making a difference by reaching out to children and young people who are in need. We are focusing on education, but also lending a hand and contributing to the next generation of leaders and education policy worldwide.
Ensuring that every child has a fair chance at success is what drives our work. The money raised by the Foundation supports community-based prevention programs, a ground up approach to making sure children are safe and secure, they make wise choices, they are prepared to be good students, and are encouraged to feel good about themselves.
Organizations with programs that meet our guidelines are invited to submit requests for grants for review. Fund grants are given annually, with the grant cycle starting in late January each year.
Funds are granted to programs that meet the following outcomes:
- Pregnant women, infants and children thrive
- Children are ready for school
- Children succeed in school
- Children live in stable, supported families
- Youth choose healthy behaviors
Examples of the types of programs supported by the Foundation include:
- After-school programs
- High quality child care and preschool
- Literacy initiatives
- Parenting education
- Mentoring programs
- Teen Centers
- Substance abuse prevention programs
What counts in life is not the mere fact that we lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lived.
