Our Vision & Mission

Since the Foundation bears his name, its ideals and objectives are those most deeply held by John. John would say, “I’m no better than and no less than anyone else. You don’t give until it hurts; you give until it feels good.” John believed you should treat people the way you would want to be treated. Be fair, tell the truth, and be honest. The values of honesty, integrity, loyalty and inclusiveness will be carried on through his Foundation.

Our Vision:

In sharing John’s vision of making a piece of the world a brighter place, we envision a compassionate community promoting life-long prosperity for all. The Foundation will support this vision through strategic initiatives, funding priorities and collaboration with partners who promote long-term sustainable change.

Our Mission:

The John T. Vucurevich Foundation invests in organizations to enhance the quality of life for disadvantaged individuals and families with an emphasis on building prosperity from cradle to career.
