Welcome To The Farrell Family Foundation

"One of the more important gifts I could instill in my children is the knowledge that a true sense of satisfaction and fulfillment is achieved through giving back to the community. Giving is a responsibility, and should be done thoughtfully and carefully.

We see our gift giving as an investment upon which we look for a return; a return that is a quantifiable improvement in society.

In other words, we don't give based on needs; we invest in expected outcomes." - Dr Peter C. Farrell

Mission Statement

To contribute to the betterment of society through the support of education, health, human welfare and the arts.

An integral role of contributions will be to promote and encourage self-reliance, responsibility and accountability.

Just in Time for Foster Youth

JIT’s mission is to engage a caring community to help transition age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.

They envision a future in which every youth leaving the foster care system has a community of caring adults waiting for them after 18. They believe consistent, long-term help from the heart is the foundation for the success of their youth so they can thrive and enjoy productive, satisfying lives.

"Since our child was diagnosed with cancer our family has been in emotional and financial turmoil. I don't think we could have made it through the ordeal without the support of the Red Kite social worker program, which the Farrell Family Foundation has generously supported."
