Point Foundation provides financial support, mentoring, leadership training and hope to meritorious students who are marginalized due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
The Point Foundation seeks the partnership of philanthropic individuals, corporations and foundations to supply financial support, professional guidance and a network of contacts for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students who are underprivileged and/or have been socially marginalized — principally by reason of sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity.
The Point Foundation recognizes that individuals may be socially marginalized or even abandoned by family, friends and society because of their sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity. Yet these lives should not be further disadvantaged as they prepare for the future.
The Point Foundation attempts to identify students who are physically, intellectually and morally capable of leadership to play an influential part in the betterment of society.
The Point Foundation also attempts to identify students who have exceptional financial needs that would require personal assistance for personal success. The Point Foundation believes that these individuals would benefit from a support system that facilitates their preparation for the future to help ensure a lifetime of effectual leadership and exceptional productivity.
By identifying and supporting these scholars, The Point Foundation hopes to provide a greater level of acceptance, respect and tolerance within future generations for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity.
Additionally, The Point Foundation believes in honoring both the scholars and the donors who are investing in the future. Therefore, The Point Foundation honors the donors, if they so choose, by creating a legacy named after themselves, or as a memorial for a loved one. This arrangement ensures their personal identification with scholars and with the mission of The Point Foundation in perpetuity.
Board of Regents
Point Foundation Regents play a major and vital role within the foundation. The role of members of the National Board of Regents is to relay communications to Regional Boards of Trustees, co-chairmanship of Regional Boards of Trustees, coordination of national Point activities, fundraising, participation on board committees, sub-committees and/or ad hoc committees, selections participation and leadership conference participation. A key to our success is the enormous efforts of these dedicated volunteers. As President of the Board of Regents, I wish to thank them for their hard and dedicated work. Regents focus on funding our scholars and the training they receive, in the selection of new scholars, and for leading mentoring, alumni, and leadership conference programs that richly enhance our scholars’ lives and prepare them for future success.
