Background

Established in 1999 in TX - Founded by Michael and Susan Dell. Michael Dell is founder and C.E.O. of Dell, Inc., a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. The foundation is a result of the Dell's passion for supporting children’s causes as a way to make an even greater difference in a measurable way, particularly for those children living in urban poverty.

Purpose and Activities

It proactively seeks out opportunities to support or develop programs that address five essential focus areas: children's health, education, safety, youth development and early childhood care.
