Lauren Abell is the President of All American Air Charitable Foundation, and has worked with Christine and Steve Chapman, Founders and Owners of All American Air Conditioning, Inc., and the organization's nine board of directors on behalf of INK! for many years. They all believe in giving back to the community. The Foundation organizes and operates fundraising activities to sustain and grow philanthropic support of selected agencies and causes.
INK! and every distributee of the Foundation must be selected by the not-for-profit's Board of Directors at its discretion and be a tax-exempt organization. "We operate at the highest level of integrity with transparency and accountability. INK! is near and dear to our hearts, and has received funding from us for several years through the Foundation, and especially from our renowned All American Air Table Tennis Classic held for 12 years to benefit those in need in our region," said Abell.
The Chapmans formed the All American Air Charitable Foundation which was incorporated in 2011, and continues the journey raising more than $1 million for worthy causes. "In our current economy and fast-paced, often stressful world, it's easy to forget the simple things that make it all worthwhile including help for our teachers and students," said Abell.
The St. Johns County Education Foundation, Inc., which operates as Investing in Kids (INK!), promotes academic success for all St. Johns County public school students by providing innovative programs, teacher support, and classroom resources to support approximately 50,000 students and 3,000 teachers. The St. Johns County Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 education foundation, with offices located at 1 Christopher St. in St. Augustine. For more information, contact Donna Lueders at Donna.Lueders@
