The Singleton Foundation

December 10, 2023

Five years ago, Will and Cary Singleton created the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship – a digital platform with accessible financial tools and learning resources to guide Americans toward financial independence, primarily through gaming, apps, and online video programming. The Foundation’s content has received more than 200 million views. The digital projects, apps, and games curated by the Singleton Foundation include Million Stories, Slyngshot, Venture Valley, Faceplant, and others.

Additionally, the narrative of the American automobile mirrors the Singleton Foundation’s innovation, serving as a poignant testament to the intertwining threads that weave their philanthropic and entrepreneurial pursuits. The American automobile, a sprawling narrative, evolved, leading the Singleton Collection to discern specific parameters for its curation: innovation, historical significance, the progression of automotive design, originality, and provenance.
