“Education is the great equalizer, the great door opener, the great confidence builder. We are proud to say that we have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of under-served children through our foundation grants.”

Frank Hevrdejs, Chairman, The Hevrdejs Foundation

        

"My grandfather encourages me and my sisters to take risks in things we believe in. Don’t just sit on the sidelines, get out there and try new things, find your passion, and don’t let one failure make you feel like you are a failure.”


Olivia Wagner, Youth Advisor, The Hevrdejs Foundation.

        

“We are pleased to announce that we are going to devote half of our grant budget to Monterey County, California. I am very excited to work with our local community in Monterey as I assume a bigger role with our family foundation.”
 
Gabrielle Wagner, President, The Hevrdejs Foundation.
