The Calahan Foundation
The Calahan Foundation, a non-profit 501c3, was created in 2009 by Edward & Shirley Calahan to inspire youth through educational scholarships, contemporary role models, entrepreneurial mentorship, and economic empowerment programs.
Our Mission is to create ways of “Giving a Hand Out ... to Give a Hand Up” to children.
Our Goal is to mentor and inspire young CEOs, entrepreneurs and leaders in our communities through business basics, work assignments, investment learning, and fun fulfillment curriculums.
Our demographic are TWEENS (ages 9 – 12, grades 4 through 7), TEENS (ages 13 – 16, grades 8 through 10), and YOUNG ADULTS (ages 17 – 26, high school/college-age students) who are highly participatory, creatively connected and achievement oriented.
