Information about the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education:
Founded in 1994 by former professional tennis player Andre Agassi, The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation is dedicated to transforming U.S. public education for underserved youth. The Foundation drives reform by engaging in practice, policy and partnerships that provide quality education and enrichment opportunities. More than 180,000 children have been touched by its funding of programs designed to enhance their character, self-esteem and career possibilities.
“I have been very blessed, and I’m pleased that I can give back,” said Agassi. “Children today face so many obstacles. Fortunately, our donors have given their time, money and resources to provide educational opportunities, recreational activities, after-school programs and more. Through this support, thousands of children have the knowledge, confidence and skills to be successful. But most of all, they have hope.”
