Educate. Empower. Defend. – Our foundation is built on these principles and strives to encourage students to develop the essential life and social skills that will make them leaders of tomorrow.
To see our efforts change the lives of underprivileged children on a national level and give them hope to do whatever is necessary to defend their dreams.
The TDDDF was founded by Thomas Davis, a native of Shellman, GA and current member of the Carolina Panthers NFL Team in Charlotte, NC. As an NFL player, Davis has a passion for football but he also has a strong desire to help those in need and to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth. When Davis founded the TDDDF he made a decision to assist youth in realizing that their past does not determine their future and that they too can one day live their dreams.
“Through education, leadership development and volunteerism we have the power to assist students in seeing the potential of their dreams in action.” – Thomas Davis
