About Us

Who We are

We are Brian, Brendan, and Emma AAPS Slauson Middle and Pioneer High students and the founders behind The Tuong Khuu Foundation (Khuu Foundation), inspired by our very special Dad and guided by Mom and a team of Board of Directors and advisors. The Khuu Foundation is a charity established in 2020 in memory of our Dad, known to many as Tom. The foundation is to serve as a light of Dad’s kind and compassionate spirit.

The Tuong Khuu Foundation is fulfilling Dad’s legacy, passion for the environment and learning, and natural giving heart.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: to leave a positive impact in the community. We want to inspire and empower lives through acts of kindness focusing on but not limited to helping the environment and STEM/STEAM education for under-resourced youth. Our hope is that each act of kindness help make a difference.

We believe that we can learn a lot from nature. Dad taught us to love the natural world and our vision is to help preserve and protect our ecosystems. Healthy ecosystems will provide everyone with energy, clean water, and clean air. They are vital for our welfare and survival and it is our job to take care of the planet.

The “A” in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) include humanities, language arts, music, visual arts, and design. “STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.” -The IAS Team

Continuing Dad’s giving heart has no end as we are inspired to live life like Dad, full of compassion and spontaneous acts of kindness that will be impactful through the years.

Our Vision

We strive to make a difference because of Dad, he inspires us to be better people with how much compassion and support he gave us and others. He loved us more than anything in the world and would show us his love in many ways. We want to spread that love…we want to spread joy wherever we can, whenever we can.
 
Dad is always in our hearts and we are reminded daily to be kind and live like him. Dad’s passion for learning and nature along with his kind giving heart lives on in The Tuong Khuu Foundation.
