Our mission is to partner with community outreaches who serve single parent homes who have school age kids. Leveraging Denard Span’s influence as a professional athlete to draw resources into local nonprofits in an effort to increase their capacity to service the needs of the target population of single parents. The Dernard Span foundation will also host pro-skills baseball camps for youths, back to school backpack drives, holiday gift celebrations, and group life coaching events.



Our vision is to see communities where single parents are empowered educationally and financially creating a strong foundation for their children to enjoy active lifestyles and experience academic as well as long-term success.



We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
