(Madison, Wis.) - The Institute for Global Ethics (IGE) recently received
a $25,000 sponsorship from the Hamilton Family Foundation as part of a
partnership to improve ethical education among today’s youth.
The sponsorship will provide five seminars to nonprofits, schools, and
government agencies in the greater Philadelphia area. The seminars will
address topics including Ethical Fitness, Moral Courage, Tone-at-the-Top,
Building School Culture, and Ethics and Parenting.
Institute for Global Ethics President and CEO Anthony J. Gray is excited
about the partnership and its potential impact. “It's an ideal
partnership,” said Gray. "Both IGE and the Hamilton Family
Foundation work diligently to provide youth with skills essential to each
child’s future success.”
“Now, through this partnership, we will be able to move forward together
in reaching this population,” said Gray.
The Hamilton Family Foundation (www.hamiltonfamilyfoundation.org) provides financial support to economically underserved children and youth,
grades K-12. The Foundation was established in 1992 by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel
M.V. Hamilton to help prepare youth for success in employment or college
acceptance and completion. The Foundation serves children in the cities
of Philadelphia, Chester, and Camden.
“We’re very excited about our new partnership with the Institute
for Global Ethics,” said N. Peter Hamilton, Foundation Director
and member of the Grants Committee. “The Foundation is continuously
seeking opportunities to improve the futures of underserved children.
This partnership will serve just this purpose, providing participants
with enhanced ethical decisionmaking competencies.”
The sponsorship is the first step in IGE’s initiative to provide
ethical education to Philadelphia's civic infrastructure. Through
similar future pledges of support, IGE hopes to provide ethical training
on an unprecedented scale.
