Location: 4520 N Central Ave Ste 560 Phoenix AZ 85012 USA

Mission: Arizona Quest for Kids was founded in 2000 by David Highmark, Chairman & CEO of Northern Trust Bank. New to Arizona, Mr. Highmark was discouraged by Arizona's poor graduation rate. In response, he established Arizona Quest for Kids, modeling it after a similar program he'd seen succeed in Florida. AQFK is committed to ensuring that youth are academically, personally and emotionally prepared to not only graduate from high school, but to excel in post-secondary education and beyond.

This company apparently promised some 5th graders from Tucson funding for a college education and are withdrawing in 2009. Huh? Unkept promises. Their financials apparently indicate being heavy on staff, management and fund raising expenses at the same time. ???
