About the P. Buckley Moss Foundation
About the Foundation
As a humanitarian role model to the Society, Pat Moss is noted for her charitable endeavors, one of which is the education of children. She believes art in all of its forms must be an integral part of the curriculum, especially to help children with learning differences succeed in school. Pat frequently speaks to groups to help improve their understanding of children who learn differently. Pat has actively promoted educational programs in the USA, Japan and Panama. Thus, the Foundation exists specifically to encourage using the visual and performing arts in all educational programs, but especially in those programs involving children who learn differently.
Goals of the Foundation

- To develop collaborative relationships with arts and education-based organizations.
