We are happy to present you with the premiere edition of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation’s magazine, Engage: Service and Social Entrepreneurship. The publication’s mission is to highlight the great works of Sullivan students, alumni, faculty and schools from across the American South, and hopefully to spread good ideas across the region.
Since 1934, the Sullivan Foundation has taken as its primary mission inspiring young people to lead lives of integrity, characterized by service above self and service to their communities. The Foundation seeks to accomplish this goal in three ways: 1) through awarding service-based scholarships to deserving students, 2) through presenting awards to college students and community members who have distinguished themselves in service to others, and 3) through promoting social entrepreneurship and service.
We hope that Engage will allow us to share the wonderful work of our colleges and universities, and to honor those who have contributed so much to their communities and the lives of those around them.
We welcome your stories and comments on how to improve our magazine and better spread the word. Feel free to submit stories or story ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the Foundation at 662-236-6335.
Please enjoy the magazine, and pass it on.

President, Sullivan Foundation
