The mission of the Bayless Foundation is to enhance the well-being of youth through community programs and events that focus on literacy education, holiday giving to disadvantaged families and children, and fitness initiatives.
In particular, the foundation targets three area of literacy with children:
- General literacy (reading & writing)
- Financial literacy
- Computer literacy
In 2013, the Bayless Foundation partnered with a fine-dining establishment to host a wine-tasting event, and the proceeds were earmarked for the foundation. A similar event has been scheduled for 2014.
Additional fundraising activities will include:
- Summer basketball camps for youth
- An urban garden where youth will grow and market products, and learn entrepreneurial skills
