The Mission of The Aeon Foundation is to promote the value of education and empower individuals around the globe through scholarships, development of mentoring programs, and direct community support.
The Aeon Foundation believes in supporting its own community. That is why we fund the Aeon Foundation scholarship. This year, The Aeon Foundation awarded two graduating seniors with $1,000 each at Johnson High School's Honors Night. The 2016 Aeon Foundation Scholarship winners are: Michaela Athena Merida and Kayla Butcher.
The Aeon Foundation also strongly encourages minority students to go for a secondary education that is why we also fund a Minority Leadership & Excellence Award. This year, one individual of minority status was given a $2,000 grant towards Spelman College tuition.
Through support of educational and charitable endeavors, we hope to transform the lives of individuals across the world. We are proud to partner with and support the following organizations:
Last year the Aeon Foundation donated $1.5 million dollars to help build a school in Tajikistan with the Aga Khan Foundation. Sonny, our CEO, is pictured below with the children in their new school.
