to Make a Positive Impact
A Charity Organization That Cares
The Chris Tucker Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of youth and families through implementing innovative initiatives and funding life-changing programs. Our organization works with industries of all kinds, including doctors and lawyers who support us.
This foundation started out being an AIDS relief foundation, and then we started doing local charity work that included offering scholarships to children of impoverished families and the homeless. Our vision is to make a positive impact in the lives of youth by galvanizing community leaders and corporate partners and engaging a collective community to address critical needs affecting today’s generation of young people
