We educate to provide opportunities.
We empower students to strive for education to develop our community and themselves.
We believe that every child deserves to have equity in dreaming, so we defend dreams.
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 Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation (TDDDF) was founded by Thomas Davis, a native of Shellman, GA and former 16-year NFL veteran. 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 youth lives. Davis founded TDDDF to help youth realize 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
