About The Waypoint Foundation
The Waypoint Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity incorporated in the State of Florida and recognized by the IRS as of June 1, 2015.
In its recent SmileMaker initiative, the Waypoint Foundation (TWF) partnered with the Keys Area Health Education Center of Marathon (AHEC) to provide comprehensive dental services to underserved elementary and middle school children in the Florida Keys.

Previous programs and activities of the Waypoint Foundation have included:
A residency program in Key Largo for selected Fellows that provided a sanctuary for emerging artists, scientists, and authors to complete a piece of original work. Since the program began in 2014, thirteen Waypoint Fellows have benefited from this program.
Public presentations, symposia and study groups that brought a world of creative expression to audiences in the Florida Keys. Two examples were study groups held in the fall of 2017 despite the hardships and devastation wreaked by Hurricane Irma: Sound Healing and Therapy on October 4-6, and Creating Relationship Awareness on November 3-5.
The Waypoint Foundation has served as ambassador for traveling exhibitions to celebrate and showcase creativity of individuals from around the world. Among these was Innocent Souls Vietnam: 1968, an exhibition created from a set of photographs taken by Glenn Hoover while serving as an infantry platoon leader in Vietnam in 1968. This Exhibition, first displayed at the Key West Art and Historical Society Customs House in October 2015, traveled to eight other venues before its last showing at the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in Atlanta, GA, in August – November 2018.
