Fox Family Foundation
People with vision-loss and blindness face barriers in access to high quality education, employment, and community connections. As a result, this population is vulnerable and disproportionately affected by poverty. The Fox Family Foundation seeks to eradicate the link between vision-loss and poverty.
In partnership with Big Picture Learning, our Foundation is supporting Project InSight, an innovative approach to activate student awareness and interest in eye-health, vision science, special education and a multitude of other fields that can improve the lives of blind and visually impaired populations.
The mission of the Fox Family Foundation is to ensure capable and motivated people-in-need can thrive inside their schools, careers, and communities. We invest in academic and work-skill solutions that prepare low-vision and blind people (in California especially, and in the USA at large) with next-step readiness. We also fund vision and literacy screenings in economically disadvantaged communities.
At Big Picture Learning, it is our vision that all students live happy and successful lives of their own design -- in their education, careers, and civic experiences -- supported by learner-centered communities, caring mentors, strong inter-personal relationships, and equitable opportunities to achieve their greatest potential. And for over 20 years, we have worked with schools and communities across the country and the world to rethink and reimagine education and schools in ways that ensure that this vision can come to fruition.
