Allyn Foundation Awards $16,000 to Good Life

The Allyn Foundation of Welch Allyn, as part of our Life Coaching Program, has donated $16,000 toward a matching grant we are looking to receive from the County. By raising 38% of a total $100,000 contract, we will be able to operate our Life Coaching program to serve at-risk youth by connecting them with an individual mentor to focus on their needs for success.

The generous grant from the Allyn Foundation will be combined with a $15,000 donation from the CNY Community Foundation toward the grant for the 2014 fiscal year. Each youth we serve will be matched with a personal Life Coach to help creat their own individualized personal plan called an A.M.P – Achieve My Plan. The Life Coaches will be there to aid in there journey to achieve the determined goals and milestones, ultimately driven by the youth.

About The Allyn Foundation

Founded in 1954, the Allyn Foundation is a private, family foundation that provides grants to charitable organizations primarily in Central New York. The Foundation’s funding priorities are a reflection of the generous legacy of William Noah Allyn, founder of Welch Allyn, and his son, William G. Allyn. The Foundation serves as a vehicle for the family to foster collectively the practice of philanthropy among succeeding generations. Through funding, engagement and influence, the Foundation seeks to reflect its family value, Be Always Kind and True.
