"One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of car I drove,
What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church,
But the world may be .. .
a little better because .. .
I was important in the life of a child."

- Forest Whitcraft

We're also proud to provide long-term support to Legacy Projects that demonstrate the strong commitment to development of the leaders of tomorrow.

The Foundation was established to carry on Thomas Gray's mission to support the youth of today as they build character, leadership skills, and seek the education they need to achieve their goals.  The family has chosen to fulfill the vision and to carry forward with his life’s work.  The family greatly appreciates any contribution to the Foundation.
