Mission Statement – Empowering young adults to achieve their dreams in the face of financial adversity

Vision Statement – At the Hourglass Foundation, we are passionate about giving back and paying it forward for others. We believe in the commitment to help others. Our belief is that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve their dreams for their best life possible, through hard work and commitment. We strive to achieve this through supporting trade school scholarship programs.

Empowering Young Adults

The Hourglass Foundation is guided by the belief that great change can come from helping young adults. Our passion is to strengthen young adults by creating hope and opportunity through scholarships and philanthropic giving.

In connection with our Mission of “Empowering young adults to achieve their dreams in the face of financial adversity,” our Vision is to support trade school / community college education through scholarship gifting.

There is more than one path to a successful career and life.  Trade Schools and Community College can offer:

  • Low to no education debt
  • Job opportunity
  • Increased salary potential
  • Potential employer partnerships

The Hourglass Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Hourglass Management Corporation, an asset management company representing a portfolio of businesses in vehicle remarketing and automotive finance industries.

We secure funds to support our philanthropic work in part through vehicle donations from companies and individuals. We accept “Anything with an Axle.” Our expertise in selling donated vehicles for competitive market prices allows us to maximize the social good we can do.

Great Work Takes Great Partners

We would not be able to support our trade school / community scholarship initiative without great partners. If you or your organization would like to partner with The Hourglass Foundation to achieve our mission or if you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, please consider giving to our fund through The Columbus Foundation called “Axles for Hope.” The Columbus Foundation is one of the top ten community foundations in the United States that assists individuals and corporations with effective philanthropy. If you have questions, please contact us.

Vehicle Donations: Anything with an Axle

The Hourglass Foundation has the expertise to maximize both the good we do with your donated vehicles and your associated tax deductions. With decades of experience in the vehicle fleet remarketing industry, we can transport and sell your donated vehicle with minimal cost, allowing your donation to do the most good.

We accept…

  • Cars
  • Vans
  • Pickups
  • Work trucks
  • Farm equipment
  • And more

If it has an axle, we will take it!
