Carlson Family Foundation values the role of education for young people. They are also committed to serving at-risk children and youth. Supporting the necessary ingredients to realize a child’s potential, such as quality mentoring—long-term, trusting relationships between children and caring adults—our grant investments aim to enhance the character, uplift the skills, and nurture leadership among children and youth in our communities.
The Carlson Family Foundation is a co-founder of the World Childhood Foundation, established by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, in an effort to preserve the rights of abused and sexually exploited children around the world. The World Childhood Foundation supports around 120 programs in 14 countries that raise awareness and serve vulnerable children who have been neglected, abandoned, and violated in unacceptable ways.
