The purpose of The Kelly Way (TKW) Foundation is to:
- Fight social injustice
- Promote positive and inclusive personal values
- Help people overcome adversity
- Sustain and grow a loving and purposeful community
The guiding principles of The Kelly Way Foundation are based on the personal mission statement developed by Kelly Cosby on February 23, 2014:
Always do everything with love. Be compassionate, give to others, live with integrity, and create positivity. Be a force for good in the world. Keep promises to myself and others. Appreciate life and be in the moment. Spread love to everyone.
The Kelly Way foundation is committed to sustaining Kelly Cosby’s legacy by making a positive impact on the world through the TKW community and initiatives.
Kelly continues to challenge us through the Be the Light Habits derived directly from her personal mission statement. A series of initiatives are in the works to extend the impact of Be the Light Habits over the coming months and years, and we are still in the process of formulating thoughts and plans with your support.
The Kelly Way Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization which is directed by The Kelly Way Foundation Board Officers listed below. TKW Board relies on the extended TKW community for support and guidance, and is fortunate to have a strong network of Kelly’s friends working with us as part of the TKW Advisory Board.
