Building and Empowering through Entertainment and Sports
A 501 (C) 3 Private Foundation
To use athletics and the arts to eradicate the ills that disenfranchise economically disadvantaged communities.
To organize programs and services that directly effect
socio-economic and educational mobility.
To support existing organizations that foster
athletics and fine arts participation.
To make human and financial commitments to organizations with objectives that are consistent with our mission.
We believe that athletes and entertainers desire to give back to the communities from which they were reared and become economic assets, business leaders, educators and role models.
Our public-private approach typically revolves around incorporating athletes and entertainers into a marketing strategy that includes social responsibility, community engagement, branding and goodwill.
