Carr Community Foundation

Education is everything. It motivates us, molds us and helps us all succeed. But sometimes accessing the proper resources is a challenge for American kids - and teachers, too. Oliver T. Carr and Carr Workplaces founded Carr Community Foundation in 2012, to help at-risk children succeed in their education. By partnering with charities across the nation, and by promoting the charity in our very own WorkReady community, we can provide mentoring, tutoring, books and supplies, building refurbishment, teacher recognition and scholarships.
