“Value of One – Power of Many”

In 2005, Joan Johns and Kim Shaheen launched “The Cornerstone” initiative to help youth in need to become good cornerstones of our community. This is a monthly pre-authorized giving program with Ignite Adult Learning Corporation began as a way for Alumni to give back to the program that helped them. The Cornerstones has expanded to include any individual, who participates in monthly investment in Ignite. Beginning as low as $10.00 per month and can be adjusted at any time. Charitable tax receipts are issued at the end of each calendar year.
