Who We Are

The Foundation Board of Trustees includes professional, business, and community leaders who volunteer their time, talent and support to assist the Foundation in fulfilling its mission of making a meaningful and beneficial impact on in-need or at-risk children.

Our Vision

The Hot August Nights Foundation has been established to create an instrument for individuals and businesses who share the Foundation’s Mission to work together to provide children in-need or at-risk with a more meaningful and productive life.

Our Mission

The Hot August Nights Foundation strives to work with community, business and education leaders to impact the lives of in-need or at-risk children by providing vital resources in an increasingly challenging world. The Foundation accepts and administers private gifts from friends, volunteers, corporations, fund raisers, and other sources to fund programs for which support is either limited or not available.
