Welcome to the Carroll Shelby Foundation
Thank you for the support you have given us over the years. Together we've made a real impact in the lives of so many people.
This is an exciting time for the Foundation. For years we've wanted to find the right way to broaden our mission and continue helping kids later in life. We believe we have found a way to do that.
Recently, the Board of Directors for the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation voted to change the organization's name to the Carroll Shelby Foundation. This change reflects the Foundation's expanded mission beyond its current outreach to include continuing education for young people.
Over the years, the Foundation has evolved from the Carroll Shelby Heart Fund, with a specific dedication to providing support for organ transplants, into the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation to help children who face all types of serious illnesses and the organizations that provide medical assistance. The Carroll Shelby Foundation will continue to help children battling life-threatening illnesses.
In addition, we will now assist kids as they grow into young adults by funding scholarships and supporting educational programs in automotive and related fields. Our first step towards this objective was to team with Northeast Texas Community College's Carroll Shelby Automotive Technology Center. Automotive education is important to the future of our great industry, and we're proud to help cultivate tomorrow's engineers, mechanics and designers.
In this new era, the Carroll Shelby Foundation will raise funds in both areas, which are equally close to my heart. This gives us the chance to help children from their first heartbeat through their educational years.
I'm confident that all of our partners and donors will share our vision and support the new initiatives and fundraising programs that are on the horizon. I encourage you to learn more about our expanded mission on our Web site at www.CarrollShelbyFoundation.org or by calling Jenni Shreeves at the Foundation.
Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you at our next event.
