About GIFT CONNECT
Our organization is part of solving some of society’s most challenging problems and helping humanity realize its full potential.
As a visionary and long-term thinker, Sam Beard has spent six decades transforming ideas into far-reaching impact. Sam created and implemented public service programs for eight American Presidents from Nixon to Obama, including six initiatives that each impacted more than 50 million lives.
After completing his education at Yale and Columbia, Sam focused on social justice and the elimination of poverty, working alongside Robert Kennedy in Brooklyn, NY in the mid-1960’s. His most noteworthy accomplishment includes the creation of more than ten million jobs in low-income communities. Sam also launched the Jefferson Awards (now Multiplying Good), the American Nobel Prize for public service and youth leadership, with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Senator Robert Taft, Jr.
