Mission: THE PROUD MISSION STATEMENT

“To solve world-class problems affecting a billion people or more through the empowerment of the masses.”
OK, there it is.  A one-sentence statement that meets the standard people expect when they want you to sum up in one sentence all that you are. The problem is, we are nothing like anyone else, or any other organization.  So, since we gave you what you expected, now we’ll share who and what we are in the only way that we know will state it more thoroughly. We see our mission as combining the power of people with the power of successful ideas made possible from the experiences of those that have realized the most success humans have ever known… to accomplish goals so large no one ever thought possible. “Combining the power of people.” As you’ll see from reading our philosophy on another page, we understand that in order to solve large problems that affect societies, it takes more than one idea or one person. For one example, it takes 50 million like-minded people to elect a President of the United States.  That teaches us that one vote is not enough.  But 50 million, it’s done. So, our FIRST mission is to create an environment that empowers the individual.  How do we do that?  By helping them realize their dream, and most people’s dreams are made possible through funding.

  • In some instances the Foundation will actually offer financial assistance directly to the individual through the form of a grant or gift.
  • In other instances the Foundation will provide the individual the education and any other assistance necessary for them to financially empower themselves by starting a new business or improving their existing one.
  • And then in other instances the Foundation will actually provide a job for those that have the talents and skill sets to assist people in these other two categories.
Once the individual is financially-supported and empowered, the next step of empowerment is for the Foundation itself. Through the collaboration of many financially-satisfied individuals able and eager to contribute their time and treasure, the combined power of these many individuals with the Foundation will have the strength and mass to accomplish these larger world-class problems. That’s not only the Proud Foundation’s Mission Statement, but its actual reason for being.

I saw this Foundation on TV and checked it out. I love the work they do to help people better themselves by setting them up in their own businesses as a way to increase their self-reliance. I have been referring as many people to them as I can. One of them was a poor soul in my neighborhood that is 54 and unable to get work again. No one wants to hire someone that age, it seems. But now by working with Proud, this guy is already seeing an income build. I see this program as a God send to so many people hurting for a career. PLEASE! Donate to Proud. This is really helping people.

Proud For Veterans just took on my father's case. He suffers so badly from PTSD that he just isn't ready for office work. He thinks he is unworthy, a sad case. I was really scared for him. But now he is learning how to work online in his own digital business from Proud's course materials, and already I see a huge difference in his outlook and perspective. If this works out for him, I could be the real difference to getting him into something that he could break out of his funk. I am so grateful! I am doing everything I can to spread the good word about Proud Foundation.

I'm volunteering to help the Foundation raise funds for the "Proud For Veterans" project. I know from personal experience how hard it is for veterans to ajust and succeed in civilian life.

I am amazed at the capacity of the Proud Foundation's team to train people in how to create and operate successful online businesses.

Roadmap's step-by-step and simple-to-follow instruction has me thinking more clearly right out of the box. I can see now how this translates into exciting profits not only for me but also for those that I am eagerly sharing this system with.

The foundation's Online Business Education is the real deal and what makes it stand out is the team behind it. Their system has showed me all that I need in a step by step format, gave me confidence to take the right action and I am already seeing incredible results. And that is exciting beyond belief.

My daughter carries high student loan debt even though she never completed her degree. Proud showed her a way to build an online income that she is applying directly to pay off that loan. Without the help and free education she would have been relying on us for quite some time. But now she is working hard on advancing herself through her own digital business. I can see a new spark in her step because she is doing this all on her own. Please support this charity. People that want to work hard at something sometimes just need a hand to get going. Who among us haven't at one time in our lives?

The Proud Foundation has the right idea. When people are financially secure and ultimately autonomous, they no longer need to be in "survival mode" all the time. At that point we are all free to focus on solving "real world problems".

The Proud Foundation team is awesome. Through their support I was able to launch a new brand of "digital products". They helped build and secure my website, e-commerce system and iOS App

Here is my personal experience with supporting The Proud Foundation. This charity goes way beyond offering temporary relief for immediate needs. It chooses to put enormous energy, creativity and heart into the long-term well being of those they help. Its programs are more than a safety net. One of their major initiatives is helping veterans who are struggling financially. They’re doing this by educating vets through digital business literacy programs, and they even build micro-businesses for these vets, businesses that generate a solid ongoing income and even create jobs. Proud is developing programs like this for other vulnerable and struggling groups right now, and everything they’re doing is practical, actionable, teachable, and repeatable. I believe Proud is a non-profit that has dedicated itself totally to releasing people from our worsening economic and spiritual ills: poverty, erosion of real income, chronic debt, and indentured-servitude “employment” to soulless corporations.
