Help us raise $50,000 so we can give away 10,000 QUEST Kits to kids in need.
Did you know that approximately 1 in every 4 kids in the U.S. has a diagnosable mental disorder (i.e. anxiety, ADHD, depression)? Our kids are struggling and need emotional support now more than ever. Personal Excellence Foundation aims to bridge this gap and provide parents, educators, and therapists with tools to help young people thrive. We imagine a world where every child is connected to their sense of purpose and lives an authentic, joyful life.
Our QUEST Kits are a set of activities, worksheets, videos, and guided audio that help kids explore life’s big questions. They are centered around our five pillars: mindful awareness, belonging and connection, the authentic self, the hero’s journey, and creating your reality. Within each pillar, kids connect with their feelings, explore their values and purpose, and learn resilience skills that will last a lifetime.
Through engaging with our materials, 100% of kids report that they feel more confident and capable to take on challenges, and 91% of parents report that their kids feel calmer and can better handle stress.

To date, we have distributed over 200 kits to families and our partner organizations the Samaritan Center and KIPP Austin College Prep. The kits are being used in therapy sessions, as classroom icebreakers to build empathy, and as offline activities to do with the entire family.
With your generous donation, we hope to increase the number of QUEST Kits we can provide our partners and establish new, nationwide partnerships where we can continue to give QUEST Kits away for free.
