Maroon 5 To Perform At Foundation Launch
SkyBridge Capital, an alternative investment firm and producers of the SkyBridge Alternatives (SALT) Conference, announced today that they have established The Aspire Giving Foundation to raise awareness and capital for organizations that provide underserved populations with the tools needed to achieve their aspirations.
The Foundation’s launch will be marked with an evening of philanthropy and entertainment – featuring a performance by Grammy winners Maroon 5 – on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, during SALT 2012 at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Aspire Giving is comprised of partnerships with a select group of non-profit organizations that address the Foundation’s vision. Aspire Giving’s current partners include: charity:water, which brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations; Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), which empowers students to own their educations in and out of the classroom by providing entrepreneurship education programs relevant to the real world; and Warrior Gateway, which connects individuals in the military community with organizations and programs (non-profit, government, educational or employment-related) in their neighborhood that are there to support them. Although all current and future charities partnering with Aspire Giving have their own distinct mission, each reflects the Foundation’s core mission to:
  • Promote entrepreneurialism, innovation and economic development;
  • Facilitate access to health systems, educational opportunities and lifesaving necessities;
  • Empower underserved and historically disadvantaged populations, communities and its citizens as to improve their quality of life; and
  • Advance human rights, eliminate disparities and reduce poverty and hunger.
“Philanthropy has always been a fundamental part of SkyBridge’s culture and we have thought long about how best to establish a foundation that would provide underserved communities with the appropriate resources to advance their goals and aspirations,” said Anthony Scaramucci, managing partner and founder of SkyBridge. “We support the great work that is being done by charity:water, NFTE and Warrior Gateway, and are excited for the opportunities that Aspire Giving will provide going forward.”
All registered SALT 2012 delegates will be invited to attend this exclusive event. There are also a wide range of sponsorship and VIP packages, including backstage passes to meet Maroon 5, access to the concert VIP lounge and invites to premiere SALT parties. Find out more here.
