BUILDING FOUNDATIONS & DREAMS WAS FOUNDED BY ADAM LEITMAN BAILEY TO ASSIST STUDENTS OF ALL AGES IN PURSUING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL DREAMS.
We strive to give back to our community in as many ways as possible, including by awarding prestigious college scholarships, youth mentoring, contributing to local charities, and much more. Through Building Foundations & Dreams, students are provided with the tools they need to excel in life and make their dreams come true.
“Every society should be judged on how we treat those persons who do not have the resources to help themselves. I have made a commitment to take the most talented young men and women from the most underserved communities and provide them with the resources and tools allowing them to be able to go after their dreams academically and as future leaders of our society.”

WHO WE ARE
Led by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers, Building Foundations & Dreams is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving our community. Based in New York City, the team works tirelessly to improve the lives of young adults from all walks of life.

Building Foundations was founded by Adam Leitman Bailey in 2002. Since its inception, the foundation has carried out over 150 projects aimed at improving the lives of those in our community. The organization has continuously provided generous academic funding and awarded much-needed scholarships to students from underprivileged backgrounds, helping them to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams. Building Foundations & Dreams aims to further this work through additional public donations.

Adam Leitman Bailey, has, during his career, assisted thousands of property owners in buying homes through his home buying book, Finding the Uncommon Deal. As an owner of several properties, and parent of two children, Adam Leitman Bailey was inspired – and uniquely placed – to write about homes in a way that is relatable to young minds in Home. In 2017, he was also named Humanitarian of the Year by a local high school for his charitable efforts.
A lifetime believer in giving back to the community and a fundamental leader in supporting and educating children within the community, Mr. Bailey has helped provide college scholarships, facilitate youth mentoring, combat bullying, provide paid internships, giving history tours and inspirational speeches at schools as well as supporting hospital research into tackling life threatening children’s illnesses and providing funds to cure children’s’ neurological diseases. 100% of the proceeds from his latest children’s book, Home, will go to the Building Foundations and Dreams, the charity he founded that strives to assist under served students of all ages in pursuing their dreams.
