What We Do

Summer Enrichment Program Mike McGlinchey

Providing access to basic needs for at-risk youth in local neighborhoods. We strive to help our local children living in poverty conditions as well as those with physical and mental disabilities.

Providing children the opportunity to believe in themselves and achieve their dreams gives them the greatest chance of success. The Believe & Achieve Foundation functions under the premise that quality outreach programs and caring adults will make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of our local youth. The Foundation works to improve not only the basic needs of at-risk families in our own neighborhoods, but aims to develop the self-esteem and confidence that will service them throughout their lives. The ability to strive and succeed develops within each individual, and The Believe & Achieve Foundation is committed to the development of this growth mindset within the family unit.

Who We Are

Founded in 2010 by local entrepreneur and philanthropist, Fred Gunther, the Believe & Achieve Foundation has donated over $1 million to support children and families in the greater Philadelphia area. In 2014, the foundation joined forces with Chester County native and NFL quarterback, Matt Ryan. Matt and his family continue to dedicate their time and support to the foundation’s important mission.
