ABOUT

​MISSION AND HISTORY

The AJL Foundation was established on March 17, 2011 by Amy S. and John E. Lawton.

Philanthropy is part of the heritage of the Lawton family that has been passed down through the generations. The Lawton family has given freely to charities, groups and the community where such gifts provided support for those in need and never had an expectation of receiving anything in return other than the knowledge that it had given back to others.

They believed every person deserves respect and the opportunity to be empowered to improve his or her life.

It has been the philosophy of the Founders to offer a hand-up, rather than a hand-out. In order to continue the Lawton family’s philosophy and beliefs in philanthropy, AJL Foundation was created to invest in the people, programs and movements that benefit Colorado's youth and families.
