About the Foundation

The foundation was created by James Stewart who grew up in Arizona and had strong ties to his community even after moving to Los Angeles, CA.  He was passionate about helping those who wanted to succeed in life, but weren’t given the same opportunities as others.  He also had a deep love and appreciation of the arts.  He gave generously to many charities and set up his foundation to continue to support the causes that made him so happy during his lifetime.
