“We couldn’t be more excited to have Beason and Johnson a part of our team here at Prolanthropy,” said Jeff Ginn president and chief executive officer of Prolanthropy. “They have both shown such passion to want to give back to the community and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to help them with that.”

The three signature programs that Jon Beason’s MLB (Making Lives Better) Foundation will include are: Back to School Blitz, Read and Rise and College Bound. The goal for these programs is to have touched the lives of more than 35,000 children by 2016.

Derrick Johnson’s Defend the Dream Foundation will also include three signature programs: Gearing Up, Just Show Up! and  Read and Rise. The goal of these programs will be to have impacted the lives of more than 30,000 at-risk Kansas City children and youths by the end of 2015.

Both of the foundation’s plan to launch off with the Read and Rise program, which is designed to bring families, schools and communities together to support children’s literacy development.   In March 2013 Johnson plans to launch his Read and Rise and Beason plans to launch his the following year in March 2014.
