Charitable Giving

 

Elite Athletes Charity Foundation, Inc. is a California  based organization aimed at supporting the philanthropic and volunteer efforts of Athletes of all genres, by providing avenues for the exchange of information, fundraising assistance, and the coordination of community service and development initiatives.  Elite Athletes Charity Foundation, Inc. serves as a charitable organization dedicated towards encouraging the giving of time, financial resources, and information, to improve the collective lives of disadvantaged citizens, advance the common good, and support the non -profit sector.

There are more than 500,000 children in the foster care system across the United States and over 100,000 of them will never be reunited with their biological families. Many foster care youth find themselves plagued with issues of abandonment; mental, emotional and physical disabilities; low self-esteem; and poor academic performance, to name a few. Then there are those who age out of foster care without the necessary tools for survival who are then confronted with issues of substance abuse, higher levels of unemployment, unplanned pregnancies, homelessness, and engagement in criminal activity that often lead to incarceration, etc.

Add to that, a devastating number of underperforming and failing schools within our public school system and we have a cause for significant alarm. There is a war on education and the aggressors include ineffective teachers and students and parents who are giving up on the fight for better education. As the dropout rates continue to increase so do poverty rates. We are in a state of emergency. It will take each of us to affect the change needed for America to succeed globally.
