The Promise of Learning Foundation

About Us

Welcome to The Promise of Learning Foundation a nonprofit organization founded in 1997 by Tom and Mary Bickimer. The primary mission of our foundation is to provide time, talent, and financial assistance to those individuals, institutions, and programs who share our belief that education offers our greatest hope and means for underprivileged youth to realize their potential. In recent years, our mission has expanded to include housing initiatives and support of emergency relief services for children and their families in third world countries experiencing profound loss and hardship from natural disasters or civil unrest.
