A finance professional based in Kansas, Bradley DiTeresi gives back to his alma mater, the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Bradley DiTeresi also contributes to Unbound, formerly the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging.
Based in Kansas City, Kansas, Unbound is a Catholic organization that collaborates with individuals of various faiths in 18 countries to address poverty in innovative ways. The organization allows donors to show their solidarity by sponsoring children or seniors in underdeveloped areas around the world. With a contribution of $36 per month, donors can help recipients lead their families out of poverty.
In addition to receiving financial assistance, sponsored individuals benefit from the knowledge of on-site staff, who help them make the most of their funding. Some families may require instruction in nutrition, health care, and small business ownership. However, understanding that each family is unique, Unbound allows families the autonomy to use the funding provided by sponsors as they see fit.
Moreover, families are gathered together in groups of 10 to 15, ensuring these families strengthen each other and hold each other accountable. With this approach, the funding provided by sponsors has a stronger impact on each family and on the community as a whole.
Bradley DiTeresi completed his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Kansas and pursued graduate studies in business administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC).
