"HELPING THOSE WHO HELP OTHERS"
The Giving Back Fund (GBF) is a national public charity that creates and professionally manages charitable foundations and other philanthropic programs for athletes, entertainers, business entrepreneurs, and corporations. Since our founding in 1997, GBF has created an important niche in expanding and diversifying philanthropy, particularly among young people, women and people of color. Our unique structure allows donors to direct more of their charitable dollars to causes they care about and less to administrative overhead. To date, The Giving Back Fund has provided philanthropic consulting, management and programming to more than 100 athletes, entertainers, entrepreneurs, and other high net worth individuals. GBF has overseen the distribution of more than $30,000,000 in charitable grants within the United States and other countries, and has developed dozens of unique scholarship, mentoring, medical, arts, and other philanthropic programs.
The Giving Back Fund is the only professional staff for the dozens of important foundations we manage, including those of Yao Ming, Channing Frye, Jonathan Vilma, Kenyon Martin, Morris Peterson, Ben Roethlisberger, Shawn Marion, Ben Gordon, Carlos Boozer, Maria Bello and more. We serve as the executive director, philanthropic advisor, CFO, and administrative staff for all these foundations. When you donate to The Giving Back Fund you are really supporting the programs and causes we help facilitate such as developing a resource group for young adult cancer survivors, providing dental services for the poor, advocating for more effective heart health screening, building schools in China and the U.S., and dozens of other life-saving projects. We implement the programs that improve the lives of tens of thousands of people each year.
If the programs we run are important to you, and if helping us save and improve the lives of tens of thousands of people in need each year brings you the enormous satisfaction that it bring us, please make a donation to The Giving Back Fund so that we can continue to help even more people.
