Known for his humanitarian work around the world, Chris has made charitable contributions to several local organizations and charities in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. His philanthropy also spans globally as he supports charities that address the health and education needs of youth. Chris is now positioning his foundation to make a bigger impact at home and internationally.
While Chris was on a trip to Africa, he witnessed conditions there that left an impact on him. He realized that we have the capability to affect our community in a positive way, and he wanted to create ways for people to get involved. We reach out to the youth by getting involved with summer camps, and we also get the endorsement of celebrities in our golf tournaments. Contact us to learn more about our youth outreach charity organization and what we can do for the community.
The Chris Tucker Foundation remains busy throughout the entire year changing lives and making a difference in our community. Thanks to the generous support of our partners and corporate sponsors, we are able to touch so many youth and families. Many people know me as an actor and comedian, but the biggest and most important role I have as a community leader. Only through your generous support are we able to increase our programs and initiatives. Please consider joining us as we work towards strengthening communities and inspiring young minds in my hometown of Atlanta and beyond.
