SCOPE: The TLC Foundation is a major supporter of SCOPE – Summer Camp Opportunities Provide an Edge, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide children in need the edge to succeed in life through the summer camp experience. Founded by TLC’s Jay Jacobs, SCOPE funds camp scholarships at nonprofit resident camps where children benefit from a positive, safe and healthy environment led by excellent adult role models, who will help them develop their full potential.
Project Morry: Dedicated towards providing positive learning opportunities to children from underserved communities, the TLC Foundation is an avid supporter of Project Morry, a nonprofit, year-round youth development organization, anchored by a residential summer camp with an educational focus. Through a curriculum based on school gatherings and an intensive summer camp program, the children, for whom these experiences would not otherwise be available, benefit from a network of support and gain increased social skills, enhanced self-esteem, positive core values and a greater sense of personal responsibility.
