We are thrilled to announce that the Atlas Foundation has been honored with the prestigious 2023 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics. This accolade, presented by the Better Business Bureau, recognizes businesses and nonprofits that exemplify exceptional ethical practices in their operations, fostering a culture of trust and integrity among their stakeholders and within their communities.

The Torch Awards for Ethics is one of the highest honors given by the BBB and is awarded to organizations that demonstrate a consistent dedication to promoting ethical practices and behaviors. Winning this award is a testament to the Atlas Foundation's commitment to upholding high ethical standards in all our activities and interactions.


At the Atlas Foundation, we believe that our ethical stance is foundational to our mission of empowering youth and building stronger communities. Our dedication to transparency, accountability, and fairness is evident in our approach to managing the Yes to Youth scholarship program, our community initiatives, and our daily operations. This award not only acknowledges our efforts but also encourages us to continue making ethical decisions that positively impact our community and the people we serve.


The BBB Torch Awards ceremony was a significant moment for us, highlighting the progress we've made as an organization committed to ethical excellence. It was also an opportunity to reflect on the practices that have enabled us to earn such recognition. These include our open communication channels, our commitment to honest and ethical fundraising, and our proactive approach to ensuring all are treated with respect and dignity.

Receiving the Torch Award for Ethics has further motivated the Atlas Foundation team to continue our work with renewed vigor and commitment. It reaffirms the importance of ethics in building trust and achieving sustainable success. We are grateful to the Better Business Bureau for this recognition and to all our supporters and partners who believe in our mission and help us uphold our values.


As we move forward, the Atlas Foundation remains dedicated to being a beacon of ethical behavior in the nonprofit sector, continuously working to ensure that our practices not only meet but exceed the highest standards of integrity and ethics. This award is a milestone, not a conclusion, and we are excited about the future as we continue to impact lives positively and ethically.


Thank you to everyone who has supported and believed in our mission. Together, we are creating a brighter future for the youth and communities we serve. Let’s continue to light the way with ethics, integrity, and community spirit.
