Founded by Emilio Torres, The basis of The CHANGE Foundation; giving a child a college education is only a small step. Mentoring them through every-day life and walking them into their first day of college, something their now late mother or father would have done, is the ultimate goal. We will provide opportunities via “CHANGE” and take on the role of the adult mentor that was taken from them by crimes of HATE. This is a LIFE Scholarship.
After the tragedy that took the life of George Floyd, I was stuck at home like everyone else during the pandemic and I was watching what was going on. I noticed how colleges across the country gave this little girl a scholarship. At first, I thought that was great, but then I realized as a marketing person, these colleges were taking advantage of that 6 year old girl and that made me really angry. So we decided to start the KQM CHANGE Foundation in the effort to not give that little girl a college scholarship, but to give her a life scholarship. It’s not just one little girl – it’s all children who have been affected the same way. – Emilio Torres President of The KQM CHANGE Foundation
“I lost my dad when I was 10 years old. If I had this foundation, if I had you back then I would have grown up very differently. Back in the late ‘80’s to early 90’s, the way the government handled AIDS, was a hate crime.”
