Our Work

Education
We believe that education is the root from which everything stems and the branch from which everything grows. Therefore, we collaborate with educators, local high schools, colleges, and universities to develop programs to better serve our students and improve the quality of our public school system.
Health
We believe that health is wealth. Therefore, we develop partnerships with community health centers to provide health literacy workshops that make it easier for individuals to navigate, understand, use information and services to take care of their health.
Wealth
We believe that the greatness of an individual is not in how much wealth he/she acquires, but in his/her ability to affect those around him/her positively. Therefore, we develop partnerships between financial and educational institutions to provide financial literacy workshops that will provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to create wealth and effectively manage their money.

Education

In today's global economy, a high quality education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity - it is a prerequisite to success. Because economic progress and educational achievement are inextricably linked, educating every student to graduate from high school prepared for college is imperative. Likewise, earning a post-secondary degree or credential is no longer just a pathway to opportunity - it is a prerequisite for the growing jobs of the new economy. States' new budgets are providing less per-pupil funding for K - 12 than they did six years ago - often far less. The reduced levels reflect not only the lingering effects of the 2007 - 2009 recession but also continued austerity in many states. Despite some improvements in overall state revenues, schools in around a third of states are entering the new school year with less state funding than they had last year. In FL, this decline in state educational investment is a cause for concern; higher education funding is 30 percent below 2007 levels and tuition at 4 year schools is 66 percent higher. Furthermore, FL is cutting taxes by $400 million in the current 2014 legislative session. This makes it difficult to reinvest in higher education. Therefore, it is imperative that we, as a community, come together to make a difference.The Foundation of the World is an advocate of expanding access to high quality early childhood learning; providing high-quality education to K-12 students; and providing educational security to students at local colleges and universities.

Health

According to a 2014 report by the Commonwealth Fund, the U.S. ranks last in the quality of its healthcare system when compared with 10 other western, industrialized nations. Although the U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other country and has the highest proportion of specialist physicians, survey findings indicate that from the patients' perspective, and based on outcome indicators, the performance of American healthcare is severely lacking. According to Karen Davis, a professor in the Bloomberg School of Public Health at John Hopkins University, America's healthcare system includes many deficiencies which include a relative shortage of primary care physicians; lack of access to primary care, especially for the poor; a large number of low-income residents who skip needed care, do not get recommended tests or fill prescriptions because of cost; high infant mortality rate; inordinate levels of mortality from conditions that could have been controlled, such as high blood pressure; and lower healthy life expectancy at age 60. The Foundation of the World believes that health is wealth. FOTW and its partners work to identify and address the factors that lead to healthcare disparities in underserved communities. We conduct community outreach events to serve as a platform for members of the community to voice their healthcare concerns and for healthcare professionals to provide solutions. Furthermore, we provide health literacy workshops that provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to improve their health.

Wealth

The wealth gap in America is growing. According to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the U.S. ranked 10th out of 31 OECD countries in income inequality based on "market incomes." U.S. income inequality is the highest it's been since 1928. After accounting for taxes and transfers, the U.S. had the second-highest level of inequality after Chile. In 2012, the top 1% received 22.5% of pretax income, while the bottom 90% share had fallen to 49.6%. Wealth inequality is even greater than income inequality. According to NYU economist Edward Wolff, while the highest-earning fifth of U.S. families earned 59.1% of all income, the richest fifth held 88.9% of all wealth. The black-white income gap in the U.S. has persisted. The difference in median households between whites and blacks has grown from about $19,000 in 1967 to $27,000 in 2011. Median black household incomes was 59% of median white household income in 2011, up modestly from 55% in 1967; as recently as 2007, black income was 63% of white income. Americans are relatively unconcerned about the wide income gap between the rich and the poor. According to a 2013 global attitudes survey by Pew Research Center, Americans in the upper fifth of the income distribution earn 16.7 times as much than those in the lowest fifth yet 47% of Americans think the rich-poor gap is a very big problem. The Foundation of the World believes that this issue of economic inequality is of great importance. In an attempt to reduce the wealth gap in the U.S., FOTW has developed the "Education Pays" program to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to create wealth and manage their money properly.
