Who Are We? Why We Started?

    People United Foundation, Inc. (PUF) was incorporated and established its 501c-3 nonprofit status in 2011. Located in the heart of the Atlanta University Center, PUF provides services to thousands nationally and locally.


    Our origins evolved out of a growing concern and recognition of the current reality of America’s educational system. Without art, there is a recognizable void; therefore deeming the educational system no longer equipped to successfully function in a depressed/recessed economy full of dysfunctional communities.

    Our Mission

    Our Mission is to build sustainable communities of educated leaders and entrepreneurs.

    Our Vision

    Our vision is to stimulate economic and community development by providing educational opportunities, creating jobs and developing an entrepreneurial spirit among our youth. By targeting dysfunctional neighborhoods whose economies have been recessed and depressed due to the voids in our educational system, it is our goal to use our resources to help our clients lift themselves and uplift others out of poverty.

    Board of Directors

    The Board supports the PUF and provides mission‐based leadership and strategic governance. PUF
    Board Members will consider PUF a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that
    priority so that PUF can credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals.
