Mission Statement

The Robert Anderson Foundation began in 1987 as a tribute to Bob Anderson who was fatally injured in an auto accident. Bob was a great contributor to his community as a Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America. He was also an active sponsor of hundreds of individuals who were in emotional need from alcoholism. Today the Robert Anderson Foundation gives back to the community by help families in need get back on their feet, providing them with a home and working with them on developing a career. The Robert Anderson Foundation also provides musical instruments to elementary students to promote early education and community involvement and goal setting. The Foundation also provides annual scholarships to college bound High School Seniors based on their community involvement.
