Variety’s Future Program delivers crucial life-enriching communication equipment and services, education and self-esteem to individual children and children’s organizations. Together through the Future program we enrich children’s lives by granting items and services that provide communication, education and self-esteem. Grants under the Future program are made to individual children and children’s organizations.

Variety supports organizations which provide underprivileged children and at-risk youth the tools necessary to pursue their education and dreams, and to overcome the barriers of poverty, poor performing schools and high levels of unemployment.
