The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education works to transform public education in the United States through their public charter school in Las Vegas and by influencing state and national policy. Since its inception in 1994, more than $180 million dollars has been raised to benefit the mission of the foundation, including $118 million from the Grand Slam for Children fundraising event. The foundation was once called the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, but after building their public charter school, it became clear that education should be their focus. This caused a reprioritizing of their efforts and money. Once a commitment was made to build a state of the art school, it was no longer feasible for the Foundation to award grants to local organizations. The majority of their funding goes to the annual operations of Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy and to pay off the debt for the construction of the school. FOR THIS REASON THEY NO LONGER ACCEPT PROPOSALS FOR FUNDING. PLEASE DO NOT SEND OR EMAIL PROPOSALS FOR FUNDING AS THEY WILL NOT BE REVIEWED.
Four years after coming to America from his boyhood town of Montone, Italy (now Croatia), at the age of fifteen, Mario Andretti began a racing career that would eventually culminate in 111 major checkered flags. Mario went on to become the only driver in racing history to win the Indy 500, the Daytona 500, a Formula One World Championship, and the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Racer Magazine crowned him 'Driver of the Century'. After retiring from racing Mario has dedicated his life to philanthropy. A main focus has been in raising awareness about the critical need for volunteers at Meals on Wheels, a program that delivers prepared food to homebound seniors and those with disabilities.
“What I get out of it is just hugging and smooching some of the ladies and making them smile,” Andretti said. “I come away feeling much better than they do. Some of these individuals, it’s probably the only person they see all day. So you’d like to think I brought a smile there somewhere. Small things like that can make a difference.”
Andretti, also is active in local children’s charities with his wife, Dee Ann. “You try to channel it in areas where you know it’s going to make a difference,” he said. “You try to do those things as the opportunity comes along. These are all the things that at the end of the day, it makes you feel good that I made a little bit of a difference, and that’s meaningful.”

In what was once the largest construction project in the history of the state of Michigan, a $754 million dollar endeavor, eventually led to the establishment of one of the finest children's hospitals in the world - the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. This is thanks in part to a generous
$2 million donation from former Michigan football standout and Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson. The hospital boasts an environment of care focused on comfort and healing, in addition to having many sustainable design elements that support
the academic research and clinical care missions of the University of Michigan Health System. It comes as no surprise that today the lobby of the children's portion of the hospital is named in Woodson's honor. The Charles Woodson Foundation offers two scholarships: The Charles C. Woodson Scholarship provides an incoming freshman who has financial need and shows outstanding promise in the field of kinesiology with four years of support. The foundation and this initiative gives preference to entering kinesiology undergraduates from all the communities where Woodson has played football. That includes Detroit and Ann Arbor, Oakland, California, and Green Bay, Wisconsin, as well as his hometown of Fremont, Ohio.
