The 8 FOUNDATION
The mission of The 8 Foundation is to develop and deliver comprehensive financial literacy programs to an under served segment of our youth population. It will accomplish its mission by partnering with reputable financial institutions, youth organizations and schools to provide age appropriate educational material teaching tools.
Having dealt with his own financial woes, Antoine recognizes the critical need for financial education. He wants to align himself with reputable financial companies and teachers to educate today’s youth on the importance of financial literacy.
The 8 Foundation
During Antoine’s playing career, he established “The 8 Foundation,” which provided free summer basketball camps in both Chicago and Boston. The Foundation also ran a community service program for 8th graders in 10 Boston inner city schools, fed over 500 families at the annual “Antoine Walker Turkey Giveaway” and spearheaded Christmas drives during the holiday season.
