The Caleb and Calder Sloan Awesome Foundation’s mission is to help disadvantaged children as well as children who are dealing with grief and loss. We are equally as devoted to benefitting those kids in need as we are in inspiring people, especially children, with the joys of service before self. ADVENTURE LAUGHTER, and KINDNESS are our mantra.

Happy Birthday Calder!

Today our son, Calder “Mr Awesome” Sloan would have turned 13 years old and been Barmitzvahed! With a great track from Stevie Wonder, we have edited together a slide show of all of his birthday parties from the day he was born until his 7th and last one. As you can see, the kid packed a lot of partying into his short years and never met a cake he didn’t like or want to wear! To all who knew him, who have supported us, and Calder and Caleb’s Foundation’s charitable endeavors, and kept his name alive, we are always grateful. We love you Calder to the ends of the universe and back! #AwesomeForever #MrAwesome #LoveNeverDies

What Our Partners Say About Us

Nickelodeon and Viacom have been honored to partner with The Caleb and Calder Sloan Awesome Foundation on multiple occasions. Through this incredible organization we have had the opportunity to provide children with much needed school supplies in conjunction with operation backpack. When Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico in 2017, many kids were facing a joyless Christmas until The Caleb and Calder Sloan Awesome Foundation stepped in. Nickelodeon was thrilled to supply holiday gifts and grateful that Chris Sloan and the foundation played Santa and delivered them on our behalf. Their dedication to helping kids in need is inspiring and truly unconditional. Nickelodeon, a brand dedicated to putting kids first, is grateful for their dedication, hard work and proud of our partnership.

At A+E Networks giving back to our communities is core to the values of our company.   This is why we participated in Caleb in Calder Sloan’s House of Awesome for 3 successful years. The activations have been a win / win. It not only gives back to at risk and underprivileged children but builds positive community by installing the joy or giving into membership and staff

Now finishing our third year partnership with House of Awesome, Promax is deeply thankful to Carla and Chris Sloan for their vision and dedication to this incredible initiative.  Through the collective power of our membership, House Of Awesome’s support, and the missions of our non-profit partners, we collectively have helped to transform lives by given those less fortunate than us access to the most fundamental of needs.
The work and love that Chris, Carla, and Caleb Sloan put into honoring the memory of their son and brother, Calder “Mr. Awesome” Sloan, is truly inspirational.  It was an absolute privilege to have been a part of their Foundation’s efforts in response to the children of Puerto Rico following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  Their contagious passion for kindness inspired an army of caring people whose actions made a positive difference in the lives of thousands across Puerto Rico and South Florida.  Thank you for making our world a better place!

Volunteers of America-Greater New York had the opportunity to develop with Caleb and Calder’s Awesome Foundation an activity that would fill a philanthropic need while allowing Promax association members attending the June 2018 Conference in NYC to volunteer in a meaningful way. The timing was perfect for an engagement related to Operation Backpack®, our annual campaign that benefits NYC’s homeless students. Operation Backpack® is a cause that resonates with NYC’s corporate community, as well as with thousands of individuals every year without whom the campaign would not exist. Promax leadership, Caleb and Calder’s Awesome Foundation and everyone who supports their vision of a kinder, gentler world, did not disappoint.
They raised the funds they said they would in a very short amount of time, ensured every logistical detail was considered and covered, and hundreds of conference attendees – some with their families – answered the call! They prepared pencil cases to go into the backpacks of 5,300 Pre-K – 4th grade  students, filling them with crayons, pencils, pens, glue sticks, safety scissors, bottles of glue, post-it notes, pens and more. This event went so well that it has now become one of the top engagement activities we offer companies looking for a unique community service opportunity for their employees.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston was thrilled to team up with The Caleb and Calder Sloan Awesome Foundation at TEGNA’s annual content summit in Houston!  The backpacks with the school supplies will ensure our youth are ready when school starts.  Heading back to school with high quality supplies allows children to pursue goals with confidence and “release their awesome.”  Adventure, laughter and kindness is a wonderful mantra that aligns with the character building programs of Boys & Girls Clubs.  We are grateful to the foundation for placing service before self to make communities better for children.

School on Wheels was thrilled to be chosen as the recipient of the Caleb and Calder Sloan’s awesome foundation’s Party with a Purpose event at the Promax Conference in LA this year – over 2,500 backpacks were filled with school supplies and donated to our organization. These backpacks are now being distributed by School on Wheels staff and volunteers to students throughout Southern California who are living in homeless situations.  School on Wheels provides educational support to children ages 5-18 living in shelters, motels, cars, on the street, and in group foster homes.  Having a brand new backpack and school supplies is a powerful and tangible tool for students who are devasted by homelessness.  Our students can start the school year like the rest of their peers with the tools they need to succeed in school.  From the bottom of our heart, we thank you and your team for giving our students the gift of hope.
