Our Mission

The purpose of the Vincent A. Huggins Foundation is to support programs in Arts & Culture, Education and Cancer Research.

The Arts

The Arts are essential.  It teaches students innumerable lessons - small differences can have a big effect in encouraging creativity. The Arts also teach that there are many ways to approach problems and those problems can have more than one solution; it teaches students how to approach complex problems with creativity and innovation. Reports show that increased access and involvement in arts education encourage students to stay in school and succeed in life and work.  Yet not every student has access to these arts in learning experiences.  The Vincent A. Huggins Foundation hopes to make this more readily available with its support.

Cancer Research

Cancer took the life of Vincent and thus, the focus on being educated about this disease is imperative and important to the Huggins family.  There is a need for the public to be educated on proper nutrition and how to live a healthy physical life in an effort to fight back against this disease.
