         The Foundation’s mission is to inspire at-risk children to a future of excellence through educational, spiritual and social resources.

         The PLEASE Foundation was founded in 2007 by native New Orleanian Yvette Endom. After being displaced from her home for nine months due to Hurricane Katrina, she wanted to make her community a better place by inspiring the children of New Orleans. Yvette created The PLEASE Foundation to help provide scholarships for inner-city children to receive the best education available to them in New Orleans. She believed that providing them with a college-preparatory Catholic education was the best way to pull them out of poverty and help them become the future leaders of our city.

         As of today, the PLEASE Foundation has provided more than 310 scholarships for students to attend Catholic Schools in New Orleans and awarded more than $700,000 in scholarship money.
