About the USC

The United Supreme Council Foundation is dedicated to transforming the lives of children, families, veterans and our aging population through improving their education, health and family economic stability. We start by identifying the people and places most in need. We then work closely with our partners to find solutions that combine bold thinking with real-world experiences. We go directly into communities and learn about struggles, needs and aspirations, then pair those most in need with proven, practical solutions to help them move forward.

Since our start, more than 50 years ago, we have committed more than $100k annually to support cradle to college programs, our veterans, and aging populations across America and its territories.

We firmly believe that true progress and transformative, sustainable change are the products of time, hard work, and a willingness to stand for what is right. We know we can’t solve every problem, but with collaboration and determination with individuals like yourself we can accelerate real progress for real people every day.

Values & Culture

We work with a sense of urgency but recognize that meaningful change requires sustained investment over time in those living and working closest to the problems. For this reason, we focus on grass-roots efforts at every level through supporting participation by people of diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We also closely collaborate with governments, city agencies, the private sector, academia, and other creative community opportunities.

Our culture is driven by trust, and leadership that empowers innovation and excellence. We are accountable to each other at the foundation, to our charter, to our sector, to the organizations we support, and to society at large and the laws that govern our nonprofit status.

Our Approach

We believe that movements are built upon individual leadership, strong institutions, and innovative, often high-risk ideas. As a charitable giving organization, we have evolved over the years, but our investments in three areas have remained the touchstones of everything we do and are central to our theory of how change happens in the world.

These approaches have long distinguished the United Supreme Council Foundation, and they have had a profound cumulative impact.

Our Mission

We believe in giving a voice to the voiceless. Our communities are often excluded from the political, economic and social institutions that provide services for the nourishment and enrichment of our people with dignity and respect. We are guided by a vision that includes economic empowerment, political awareness, social justice and service to the community. For more than a century, our mission has been to reduce poverty and injustice, strengthen democratic values, and advance human achievement from the cradle to college, in support of our active and retired military, and our aging populations.

Our goal is to empower individuals and groups to share in the knowledge, wealth, and resources of this world, in hopes of reaching their full potential. Our Foundation is built on your donations and gives 100% of your donations to charitable and philanthropic causes. Your tax-exempt donations can be made in a multitude of ways; please consult your financial planner for more information. We thank you for considering us as part of your estate planning, and your legacy of giving.
