The High Stakes Foundation
High Stakes Times Indeed.
Like so many others, our hearts are broken by recent events. At High Stakes Foundation, we recognize there are fundamental equality and justice issues across the country, that need to be addressed. We stand in solidarity with the black community and allies who have engaged in nonviolent protest to address systemic racism. There are a lot of voices out there advocating for change. We think Michelangelo was right when he said, “criticize by creating.” Protest, donate, write to your local politicians, VOTE, and engage in conversations with those around you, even when uncomfortable. Make your voice heard and speak out against injustice when you hear or see it.
We support small businesses, equal opportunity, and resilient communities that are inclusive of everyone.

As leaders of our own families, neighborhoods, and organizations, let’s work together to not only get through this but to envision and create the world we want to live in. Crisis presents challenges and opportunities but it is a terrible thing to waste. Here’s to continuing to work together to build a better world, and a better tomorrow.
