|Don's Foundation was founded by his family to promote and fund
his favorite cause........The Alternative Break.
College students choose to spend their Vacations breaks helping
others less fortunate. This was Don's passion.
"We are so proud of the
Great example that Don
set for young Students.
He chose to use his
to travel with fellow
help others in need,....
and he had Fun doing it!
We are now dedicated
to spreading the
"good word" about Don
and encourage other
students to do the same"

|Since the beginning of the Foundation in 2009, the Don Ausman
Foundation has donated over $40,000.00, primarily to 3 Colleges;
FLAGLER COLLEGE, University of St. Augustine
and Michigan State University.
Many College students that would choose an Alternative Break
do not have the funding to pay for their expenses while away.
Donations from the Don Ausman Foundation adds some
financial aid for some generous young students who
choose to help others on their vacation breaks.
