The McSweeney Foundation was formed for the purpose of spreading the love and understanding of Jesus Christ through acts of kindness such as providing general food, shelter and clothing needs for the less fortunate, and by increasing the quality of educational opportunities for underprivileged children; both domestically and abroad. Our guiding principal is that people are a product of their environment. Therefore, our initiatives are focused on programs that help communities by improving their environment and opportunities. We will not provide hand-outs, for this is only a short term crutch rather than a long-term enabling path that can provide an opportunity for self preservation. We will work alongside existing organizations that share our vision to help families and children change their environment through 3 key initiatives: (1) International Education (2) Local Community Mentoring (3) Seasonal Assistance.
