A Few Words About Us

The AZAR Foundation was founded in early 2011. It was born from a group of individuals that wanted to positively influence the lives of youth and the communities around them. The vision of the foundation came from a humble commitment to serve those who need it, and to create initiative and programs to help all children.

Armed with big hearts, motivation and knowledge of the impact, awareness of our causes, and small amounts of donations, the AZAR Foundation has taken tremendous strides and has set its place as an established organization.

Our Vision

A Lifeline Network
for Youth and Families in our
Community and around the World!

Our goal is to go where the needs is and promote healthy and safe environments for youth to learn and become innovative, leaders, and positive contributors to society. Our plan is develop low budget, high impact, self-sufficient projects at least four times per year. We plan to work on two projects at a time in the summer only and two projects all year long, while exploring future goals and initiatives. We believe that by partnering with established grass-roots organizations, we can begin to build a community of like-minded individuals who share interest in our causes.


AZAR Foundation contributed to the Texas Healthy Adolescent Initiative as we seeded the community with over 1 million dollars in resources - serving 800 youth and 200 parents during it's "Game Changers" youth summit. We look forward to the continued support of the AZAR Foundation as we endeavor to advance youth development, from the inside out.

"The AZAR Foundation has become a beloved strategic partner who celebrates talent and leadership abilities from a diverse community; thus supporting organizations large and small. The gift of receiving AZAR support is that it enables us to garner high-profile community response, helps us to sustain the ongoing excitement about charitable, civic, social, educational, and scientific research; which builds audiences; and builds a true community of patrons, audiences, and stakeholders for our organization. The AZAR Foundation helped us aide in a significant corner of the socioeconomic world existing here in Rockford, Illinois. Their service delivery and vision is what has enabled us to realize the mission we set out to achieve."
