Ketchum Family Commits $20,000 to Fuel New Gallup-HOPE Index Local Study
Personal contribution by Rick and Mary Beth Ketchum paves way for other individual donors
DALLAS--Rick and Mary Beth Ketchum’s $20,000 contribution to Operation HOPE, the leader in economic empowerment and financial dignity, will help fuel a study with global research-based consultancy, Gallup, Inc that will gauge the entrepreneurial aspirations and energy that could help drive future job creation in America and is based on the Banking on Our Future curriculum.
The Ketchum contribution will focus on students in the Dallas Independent School system and support HOPE’s Office of Innovation, Research and Assessment.
“We will never succeed in addressing our equity or global competitiveness challenges until we provide our youth of all economic backgrounds with the knowledge, tools and will to succeed,” shared Mr. Ketchum.
