A spirit of adventure, a sense of purpose and a commitment to positive values
and unending personal growth are the building blocks of the Uncommon Friends
Foundation Inc. These noble personality traits were exhibited by some of the
greatest men of the 20th century – Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone,
Alexis Carrel and Charles Lindbergh – and were elaborated on by author Jim
Newton, who dubbed this band of visionaries his “Uncommon Friends.”
The Foundation’s passion and goal is to see that the arresting qualities of these historic and bold men continue to be embraced today and for the generations to come. As Jim Newton proclaimed,”The best is yet to be!” This is the Uncommon Friends Foundation.
The Uncommon Friends Foundation inspires future leaders toward excellence of character, a spirit of innovation, and a sense of purpose.
