About Michael Bolton Charities: Founded in 1993, the Mission of The Michael Bolton Charities, Inc. is dedicated to two critical areas: (1) The assistance of children and women "at risk," and (2) Through education and effective programs, create social awareness to broaden horizons and expand opportunities for youth across socioeconomic and multicultural lines.
Through the years, our mission has remained clear: We continue to make funds available to organizations providing direct services to those in need as we search for solutions to the issues that put children and women at risk. We work towards fostering dynamic social change - to break the cycle of domestic violence, poverty, abuse and homelessness through innovative initiatives.
The major focus of The Michael Bolton Charities is in the area of violence against women. Five years ago, Michael joined forces with coalitions of women’s groups and members of Congress to pass the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Michael, personally, has continued to devote his time to draw attention to the domestic violence epidemic and to enlist other men to raise their voices for zero tolerance on the issue. He has directed his foundation to do whatever possible to secure continued and additional funding to keep our shelters open, our educational programs functioning, and our children and women safe.
