The foundation’s fundamental premise is all mankind is part of the same family with one home planet earth. The root cause of problems on earth can be attributed to differences of religion, race and nationalities. Non-acceptance promoted by faith based ideology must be replaced with rational scientific reasoning if the planet is to survive.
In order to plant the seeds that will benefit future generations, the foundation will support activities that have a significant, vital and measurable long-term cumulative effect on our planets population and environment. This can be accomplished by supporting creative free-thought organizations which spread humanistic values and education programs which develop critical thinking skills.
In 2001, The Louis J. Appignani Foundation, Inc. was established with an initial endowment of $2,500,000.
