From Zero to One: The Beginning of a New Foundation

At TUEX Education, we believe that education can change people and save lives. But in a world that emphasizes so much on education, free education and affordable tutoring are staggeringly hard to come by. With that in mind, TUEX Foundation was born in 2018 in hopes of providing free tutoring to children of low-income families.

Having a goal is easy, but achieving it is another story. The harsh reality is that running a foundation and offering free education can be costly. So, where to begin? We started from zero.

In late 2019, the foundation successfully launched its very first fundraising event. WeWork, a close partner of ours, generously offered a space for us to host the two-week silent auction. We collected an array of interesting items from friends and relatives: from electronics to snacks, toys to luxury goods - it was a Christmas market in a nutshell. The silent auction not only gave the foundation an injection of much-needed funds, but it also spread awareness to other members at WeWork and brought the community closer.

Overall, we auctioned off near a hundred items and raised over $1,100 from the silent auction. The next step is to utilize all the resources the foundation currently has and help as many children as possible. Stay tuned.
