Empowering Youths to achieve their greatest potential.


To ensure that girl-serving organizations are more connected, more effective, and better able to prepare today's girls to be the leaders, agents of change, and thriving women of tomorrow.

"Fusenot Foundation's generous contribution to Alliance for Girls (AFG) will make a tremendous difference to our work. AFG is championing the leaders who transform communities. Through AFG, more than 100 organizations, including 8,000 adult allies, are working collectively to break down systemic barriers and ensure every girl has the supports and opportunities she needs to thrive. Together we have produced original research on the lived experiences of girls in California, passed new sexual harassment policies with and for girls, and we have trained thousands of service providers and educators in best practices for meeting girls' needs (89% learned new skills that make them more effective in their roles). The funding provided by the Fustnot Foundation will allow us to deepen this programming and pursue our vision of a world where a girls' worth is determined by her mind and spirit, her body is safe and a source of joy, and the sky is her limit."

Emma Mayerson, Executive Director

Alliance For Girls


To enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

"More than 3,000 children have a safe, active and fun place to stay, play and learn until it’s time to go home. No child is denied access to the Clubs due to the inability to pay the dues, and scholarships are offered to families in need of financial assistance. In order to keep our membership dues low, we need the support of our community and beyond. The Boys & Girls Clubs of East County is proud to be a recipient of the Fusenot Charity Foundation."

Arete Academy is designed to impact the lives of children to cause them to become more knowledgeable about the world in which they live, and to inspire them to assume roles of leadership.  We strive to teach them to become trend setters rather than trend followers.

"On behalf of the F.O.L.D. Church, we want to sincerely thank the Foundation for the grant that will aid us in continuing to minister to the children of our "Arete" youth department."

James & Hazel Dawson, Pastors

Thursday’s Child deals with endangered children teens and young adults. It maintains a 24-hour helpline that encompasses a broad spectrum of issues, including alcohol abuse, anger, anorexia, anxiety, binging, body shaming, bulimia, child abuse, child abduction, child trafficking, cutting, date rape, dating abuse, drug abuse, grief, Internet safety, missing children, molestation, parental abduction, obesity, rape, runaway, runaways, self-injury, sexual assault, sexually-transmitted diseases, smoking and vaping, STDs, stress, suicide, teen pregnancy and teen prostitution. We have the only directory listings for most of these issues.

No other helpline in the Western Hemisphere exists for bullying victims, and no other (free) helpline exists for eating disorders or for self-injury in the world. We offer legal assistance in child custody cases. We actively help find missing children, seek out and eliminate child pornography sites from the Internet. We offer web-interactive support for both parents and teens. And we will, when needed, interface with school with issues of bullying to ensure that the bullying stops, as all too many children have either committed suicide over have been bullied, or attempted it.

"The grant from the Fusenot Foundation will help us to broaden our services to endangered children, teens and young adults, and to continue to maintain our free 24-hour services."                                                                                                                                                                           Donald Kieran Austen, Founder & President
