Sola Amari Endowment

The Sola Amari Endowment is a fund inspired by children and adolescents who have shown exuberant amounts of resilience, strength, and hope. They shine their light in this world so strongly despite coming from areas of poverty, environments of abuse or neglect, or other personal hardships.

The hearts of these children are some of the most beautiful blessings in this world. The Sola Amari Endowment thanks each and every one of you for your donation and contribution to bettering the lives of these children.
