The Kara Kares Foundation is a non-profit organization based on the conviction that an educated society is necessary for a healthy democracy and healthcare providers are essential to maintaining that society. Our goal is to help as many deserving individuals as possible within our community to achieve their educational and career goals. This objective has the added benefit of bettering the community at large. We strive to ensure that no deserving scholar will be deprived of an education because of a shortage of funds. Providing access to educational experiences prepares individuals to engage in lifelong learning and service to others. The foundation also seeks to provide comfort in the form of services, goods, and kindness. The high cost of education deters many caring individuals from healthcare careers. This foundation allows people to become service providers because of their tuition costs being deferred.
