The 12.14 Foundation was formed following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School to build confidence, inner-strength, inspiration, and the tools children need to lead successful, productive lives. Its mission is to encourage personal development through high-level performing arts programs, which in turn produce a longlasting, positive affect on the way children and young adults see themselves and the world around them.
