Plant a seed, inspire a dream

The Plant a Seed Inspire a Dream Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity with the sole purpose of helping children from low-income households to pursue their dreams and passions.

The foundation was started by Gene and Michele Rice, parents of four, who raised their family in Bucks County. Each of their four children had a different passion and the Rice’s did all they could to be involved and support each child along their chosen path.

Over the years it became clear how important it was for their children to be involved in activities that they were passionate about. They saw their children grow each day and work hard at their craft. Their children learned about work ethic, responsibility and were able to create life-long relationships with positive adult role models and like-minded peers that had similar dreams and aspirations.
