Where does my donation go?

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation was incorporated in the state of CT as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in January 2013. The organization continues to sustain and grow thanks to contributions from generous donors, grants, and fundraisers. We still have a long way to go to give every kid and adult worldwide access to social and emotional learning and facilitate this teaching in school, at home, in communities, at work and beyond! Please consider joining the Movement and being a part of the solution to the issues we face and, in turn, make this world a loving and more peaceful place!

  • The Choose Love Movement is now in all 50 states and 90 countries, impacting more than 2 million children.
  • In 2019, we added new extension programs including Champions Choose Love for coaches and student-athletes, Healthy Grieving for Kids, Teens and Adults, updated all supplementary materials, and made updates to the curriculum.
  • We held a poetry contest as part of the 5th annual Choose Love Social & Emotional Learning Awareness Month in February with more than 300 entries from throughout the world.

Help us do more:

Keep the program at no cost! While the Choose Love Enrichment Program has no cost for educators and others to download and implement, donations cover costs to the Movement, including updates to the materials, development of new content and evaluations.

Expand into additional communities around the globe where the program and Jesse’s message is desperately needed in, for example, communities that have experienced trauma or high rates of violence, and underserved and low-income areas.

Create and expand extension programs, which will spread a consistent message of choosing love beyond the classroom and into our communities, homes, and workplaces (see additional programs here).
