Our Mission

The mission of the foundation is “provide. nurture. grow” with a vision of “sowing potential”. As long as we have faith and continue to work diligently, God will continue to bless us to be a blessing to others.


Sowing Potential: A simple concept generated by the life cycle of the rose. Proper care and nourishment reaps beautiful outcomes. There are thorns along the journey, but patience and perseverance triumphs.



Provide educational opportunities to youth who excel in the performing arts


Nurture families coping with a child’s medical challenges


Grow a renewed spirit of helping others

We are making a difference. Please view to see the Greensboro City Council meeting on November 19, 2019, where November was dedicated as International Men’s Day and National International Men’s Month, thanks to Rosa Foundation.
