For the past 9+ years, Scott Foundation has impacted the lives of 4,500+ youth through the development of core social emotional learning and life skills with the help of committed volunteers and community support. Those same youth have made a community impact directing nearly $500K in donations back into the community.

We do this in two ways - Through a Practice of Compassion we provide evidence-based educational experiences that focus on emotional learning through creative arts and inspiring life applications of peace-building and selfless service.
Additionally, we devote focused effort to The Children's Heart Gallery - featuring Arizona's children in need of a forever family. Through Operation Toy Box, each adoptable child dedicates a filled toy box that honors their reflective story of courage, hope and inspiration. Placed in statewide DCS Offices, their story and gifts warmly acknowledge the unimaginable fear of other children coming into the foster care system.
Scott Foundation provides programs and service FREE of cost to kids in the Arizona foster care system and at-risk youth.
"Along with developing heads, we must also develop hearts. For it is the heart alone that determines whether the power derived from knowledge will be used for positive means or negative ends." - ISSE-USA
We believe in making the world a more peaceful and loving place by emotionally teaching kids to make better choices through selfless service.
