EW Foundation

EW Foundation, Inc. (EWF) was founded in 2012 by Loretta Neff, an author and etiquette professional, as a philanthropic organization to provide character and etiquette education programs for children and youth through various charities, missions and schools.

The EWF believes that every child and young adult should receive an education that includes a strong social foundation. Through philanthropy, which plays a meaningful role in our organization, we hope to greatly enrich the lives of others with our care, commitment, and resources.


Our mission is to provide educational programs, financial resources, and volunteer support for the benefit of children and youth.


Our vision is to empower children and young adults with social tools necessary to succeed in school and beyond, provide value to our charity and school partners, and improve the human condition worldwide.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.”

~ Henry David Thoreau
