About the EDGE Charitable Foundation
Established in 2007, The EDGE Charitable Foundation, is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that provides educational, environmental and humanitarian support to children. In South Florida, 90% of the children impacted by the EDGE continue to work and live in the area where they initially received aid and support. These children are from low income families, migrant families, victims of domestic violence and victims of human trafficking. The organization’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a group of students between the ages of 13-17 which serve as a resource and a voice for the younger generation of humanitarian supporters. In return, the EDGE Board of Directors mentor the students on leadership and helps them organize humanitarian projects on a local community level.
