Our mission is to both support charities that aim to promote, protect, and defend equality for those within LGBTQ community and to support arts education in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, focusing on inner-city schools and underserved students.
Our goal is to provide lasting impact within our community by supporting the efforts of local nonprofit organizations that provide services to the LGBTQ community. As well, The Macricostas Pulley Foundation aims to strengthen and improve the quality of arts education in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
“Studies show children from low-income families are less likely to be consistently involved in arts activities or instruction than children from high-income families.”
Art education is “increasingly accepted as an essential part of achieving success in school, work and life.” The arts add personal value to a child’s education and life while also improving their attitude towards learning and teaching them to better communicate with adults and classmates. By supporting arts education, The Macricostas Pulley Foundation are providing a education to the children within our more well-rounded local community.
