Our Foundation

Through the La'Micheal V. Eddie Challenging Minds and Changing Lives Foundation, The Academia Society, Inc. will provide the framework that will enable, support and provide access for the economic growth of the Black and Multi-Cultural Family.  We realize all communities of color are facing challenges as society moves towards a global economy which demands academic excellence and preparedness.

Many mothers and fathers are faced with serious barriers in child rearing especially if they have limited financial resources, lack of formal education or training or have been incarcerated.  Our organization has been challenged to offer meaningful projects or to develop new partnerships working with men and women re-entry programs, children of incarcerated parents or job readiness programs targeting hard to place populations. We intended to provide resources for scholarship and general financial to better the social, civic, spiritual, mental, physical and moral conditions of not only our members but to the general public and those in need.

The L.V. Eddie  Challenging Minds Changing Lives Foundation, Inc. (CMCL) is a 501(c)(3) organization, established by The Academia Society, Inc.
