AJA Foundation Founder and Chairman, Andy Astrachan in Zambia
AJA Foundation seeks to help those who have done everything society asks of them, yet for whom access to fundamental resources and advancement remains elusive at best and structurally impossible at worst.
Understanding that the “playing field” of opportunity tilts substantially and unfairly towards those coming from advantage and that nobody succeeds on their own, AJA Foundation is dedicated to leveling the playing field by investing globally in organizations providing equal access to resources addressing fundamental human needs and human rights.
We invest our money in, and are prepared to lend our business and fundraising expertise to proven and successful non-profits of all sizes that provide equal access to quality education; equal access to essential social and legal services; equal access to quality healthcare – with a current emphasis on access to clean water in developing countries which we believe to be a primary human right; and we invest in medical research for the benefit of mankind.
In these areas and others, AJA Foundation invests in those organizations that have demonstrated success with narrow and clearly defined missions, cost effective solutions, sufficient infrastructure, accountable management, detailed reporting and proven results.
And, because we believe that in all cases it is the people within an organization who drive success, we invest in those people capable of, and irrationally committed to delivering exceptional outcomes.
