Founded in 1989, the mission of All Stars Helping Kids is to disrupt the cycle of poverty and encourage innovation by seed funding start-up nonprofits in the Bay Area. Our vision is to increase the effectiveness of these nonprofits so that all youth are able to thrive, regardless of where they come from. The values that guide our work, both internally and in the community, are: Risk-taking, Teamwork, Integrity and Reflection. We believe that breaking the cycle of poverty will give all youth a fair shot, and will benefit each and every one of us too.
