Project 5117 “Powered By” $1 million commitment from The DeBruce Foundation
ATLANTA – December 8, 2014 – Global financial dignity nonprofit leader Operation HOPE announced today that the DeBruce Foundation has joined its movement to implement a sustainable, scalable empowerment platform for transformational change in underserved communities across America.
Inspired by its message of empowerment, as outlined in “The Memo” from HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant’s best-seller How the Poor Can Save Capitalism, the DeBruce Foundation has committed 1 million dollars to “power” HOPE’s Project 5117, aiming to create positive change in the community.
“We are pleased to have the support of the DeBruce Foundation, said John Hope Bryant. “With the support of the Foundation we will be better positioned to deliver "The Memo”, through Project 5117 programs and empower all aspects of an individual through financial education, positive role modeling and the tools needed to convert aspiration into achievement.”
The DeBruce Foundation is a private organization established by Kansas City business and civic leader, Paul DeBruce, founder of DeBruce Grain and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. The Foundation is wholly committed to enabling extraordinary transformational change.
