Our Mission

The NACD Foundation is an international organization that exists to create, gather, evaluate, and disseminate information and procedures relative to human development.

The mission of The Foundation is to educate parents and communities in order to create a better understanding of human development; provide financial support to families who want to help their children achieve their innate potential; and support the efforts of the National Association for Child Development in continuing to research and create new methodologies to further the field of human development.

The vision of The Foundation is to help the children and thereby change the world.

“Everyone working to help a child must operate with a philosophy that we can always do better and that we can never do it all well enough.”

— Robert J. Doman Jr., Chairman
