For a Bright Future was born out of Hernandez Jr.’s own personal experience and journey, living through the challenges of belonging to an underprivileged and underrepresented group. He understood the importance of providing equal access to education, healthcare, the arts, and leadership development, and was inspired to create the foundation to give back to deserving students.
“I’m very humbled to have such accomplished leaders, caring people and recognized organizations join our cause and give, support, and inspire those in need. I’ve always felt we have a responsibility to support those who need it most. I’m so proud of the foundation’s board of directors, the volunteers, and especially the Events and Fundraising committee who have done an incredible job. With this support, we’ll be able to help even more children through our many programs.
