The Ware Foundation is dedicated to being of service to and uplifting humanity such that the planet is made better by the work that we are supporting. To that end, we work with Faith based organizations to address a variety of issues which are negatively affecting people and places worldwide. The foundation's general mission is to provide grants that improve the quality of people's lives, particularly the lives of children.
