A world where all disadvantaged children are able to attain a great education despite their financial difficulties.

The Galleon Foundation helps other nonprofit organizations in their fundraising effort through a partnership with us, using tickets sales to any of our events. A portion of the sales will be donated to the organization. We also support other organizations in their efforts to provide students with school supplies.
