There are many worthy organizations in our community
working to improve the lives of Charlotte youth, but very few are
dedicated to developing friendships between children. Most non-profit
endeavors for children attempt to provide for education and healthcare.
We wanted The Posey Foundation to be focused solely on the development
of friendships through recreation and activities that underprivileged
and abused children do not have access to. To help us achieve our
goals, we have chosen to work hand-in-hand with the following organizations:
• The Courage House – Youth Homes, Inc.
• Crisis Assistance Ministries
• Florence Crittenton Agency
We feel that by dedicating ourselves to just a few
organizations we can work more intimately with each organization.
Our involvement with the kids in the Courage House
started upon my arrival with the Carolina Panthers. Their ongoing
work with abused children warms the heart and will provide us with
many opportunities to show the kids the love and support they have
been looking for.
The Posey Foundation is in the planning stages of
a coat drive with Crisis Assistance Ministries this fall. Our goal
is to make this a Charlotte-wide event in an effort to make this
an annual philanthropic experience to benefit kids without the means
to stay properly clothed throughout the winter.
The Florence Crittenton Agency is presently conducting
an effort to raise capital to expand their facilities. The Posey
Foundation will be giving to their organization in the form of monetary
support and personal time to help them see their campaign through
The Posey Foundation is constantly seeking opportunities
to benefit the lives of children in the Charlotte community. We
are considering a special Christmas time event to distribute gifts
to children and a Family Reunion event this spring in a park in
Charlotte. If you have ideas for possible events to benefit kids,
please let us know.
