Supporting opportunities for youth and their families
All youth should have access to opportunities, experiences, and relationships that allow them to:
discover who they are,
develop the abilities needed to shape their own lives, and
learn how to engage with and contribute to the world around them.
Our mission is to support grantee partners that provide highly relational support services that lead to stability, expanded possibilities, and lifelong success of youth.
Arthur Dean Family Foundation was founded in 2016 with the intent to support, center and uplift the organizations, leaders and grantee partners making a difference for youth and families in Hamilton, Marion & Whitley Counties.
A Trust-Based Approach
Arthur Dean Family Foundation believes philanthropy requires curiosity, clarity, empathy and trust. We use these values to guide us as we humbly work alongside our grantee partners to create a unique relationship-centered approach to grantmaking.
