Our mission is to serve and empower single parent homes. We are dedicated to creating strong sustainable home environments where both parents and children can thrive physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually.

We partner with various community groups within the Tampa Bay area to reach those in need. Previously, the Denard Span Foundation has impacted communities where Denard has played which include Minnesota, Washington D.C., San Francisco and currently Tampa Bay Rays. 


In 2018, The Denard Span Foundation is specifically raising support to help provide single families with reliable cars for transportation, grocery necessities, and scholarships for education opportunities.

We are also continuing the tradition of bringing Span Fans to Tampa Bay! Partnering with the Tampa Bay Rays to provide children from single parent families the opportunity to experience a day inside MLB with Denard Span. 


Our vision is to see communities where all single parent families are provided the resources and encouragement to build and sustain strong families.

Our goal is to develop communities where families are thriving and reaching beyond their goals, which will lead them into long term success with the ability to pass on confidence, hard work, and belief in the power of God.

“I pray these young children we reach grow up to be strong leaders and contributors in their own community.” -Denard Span


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