If I can help somebody as I pass along. If I can cheer somebody with a word or song.  If I can show somebody he’s traveling wrong, Then my living will not be in vain. If I can do my duty as a Christian ought.  If I can bring salvation to a world once wrought.  If I can spread the message as the master taught, then my living will not be in vain.

Founded   in   1986,   The   UPLIFT   Community   Foundation   is   a   nonprofit,   501   ©   (3),   charitable and   educational   organization   that   provides   grants   and   implements   programs   designed   to improve the social and economic status of diverse communities. It   issues   grants   to   support   activities   which   will   have   the   most   positive   effect   on   the   lives   of the   residents   in   our   communities   while   also   serving   the   interests   of   each   donor.      The foundation   also   strives   to   bring   community   leaders   and   others   together   to   address   social and   regional   challenges   in   an   attempt   to   help   create   a   better   community   for   today   and tomorrow. What   is   a   community   foundation?      It   is   an   organization   made   up   of   large   and   small charitable    gifts    and    donations    from    the    communities    it    serves.        Any    individuals, businesses,   corporations,   or   other   nonprofit   organizations   can   contribute   money   or   in- kind   contributions   to   a   community   foundation.      The   foundation   then   invests   some   of these    gifts    and    uses    other    income    to    make    grants    that    help    to    strengthen    our communities. As   a   community   foundation,   Uplift’s   philanthropic   role   is   to   leverage   funds   from   national foundations,     major     corporations,     and     local     and     federal     governments     for     worthy community   projects.      In   this   way,   it   serves   as   the   eyes   and   ears   for   national   and   local public   funders   that   would   not   otherwise   have   the   capability   to   evaluate   small   grants   on   a local or national level. Uplift   is   supported   by   individual   donors   who   contribute   money   to   establish   individual named   funds   or   separately   named   endowments      to   help   improve   the   quality   of   life   in   their communities    and    to    prepare    for    their    future.        It    also    professionally    manages    and distributes   grants   from   charitable   gifts   and   bequests   in   a   manner   consistent   with   the donors’ specific and general interests. Uplift   has   a   Presidential   Advisory   Cabinet   and   Advisory   Board   which   serves   as   a   resource for   policy,   legal,   and   tax   questions,   monetary   and   in-kind   contributions   as   well   as   experts in   related   disciplines.      There   are   more   than   500   community   foundations   nationwide,   and Uplift represents one of the more proficient segments of this group in the United States. Uplift   has   extended   its   Outreach   Development   Program   throughout   the   United   States.         Its donors   stretch   across   the   country   with   services   that   are   available   to   a   wide   range   of communities.      However,   its   heaviest   concentration   of   services   and   support   is   currently   in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.
