As a foundation, we will commit our time and energy to research and aid programs about which we feel strongly. The Esping Family Foundation philosophy is rooted in the heart of its founder’s theory of success: the free enterprise system. Free enterprise allows mankind to realize the American dream, to succeed through hard work, persistence, creativity and determination. Without the free enterprise system this foundation would not exist. Our foundation will strive to help others help themselves by supporting active programs with strong leadership and entrepreneurial activity.
