Inspired by the positive attitude and strong will of the Haitian people, Sporting Chance Foundation was founded to better the standard of living in Haiti. By teaming up with prominent athletes, various communities, and businesses around the World, Sporting Chance is raising money to concentrate on what we believe are two of the most important aspects of bettering life in Haiti, education and clean/potable water. Both of which many Americans take for granted, yet few Haitians have easy access to an education and many have to walk over 10 miles to get potable water. Food on Head

To help provide better access to education, Sporting Chance Foundation is providing scholarships to children who would otherwise not be able to afford school. We believe education will propel young disadvantaged children out of the streets and on to bright futures. With 90% of schools in Haiti being private, we are determined to give these underprivileged youths an opportunity to learn, the same way we were given numerous opportunities to grow and learn as children. Without education, many Haitian children are 'left behind' and resort to joining one of the many gangs that plague Haiti. By keeping many of the youths out of the gangs and in the classroom, much of the violence and corruption can be averted. One year of private schooling in Haiti costs only $60.00 U.S. Dollars. This $60.00 goes to funding the schools, paying the instructors, and making sure that both the students and teachers are present, on a day-to-day basis. As the $60.00 tuition is relatively small, each and every one of us can help make a difference, even with the smallest of donations.
The second initiative of Sporting Chance Foundation is building community water wells, which provide clean/potable water to thousands of people daily. Today, water-borne illnesses are the number one cause of death in the world. Too often we take clean, potable, drinking water that is delivered to our homes and businesses for granted. It is estimated that a single community water well will provide clean water to as many as 10,000 people. Once built, the water wells will be maintained and cared for by the individuals who use them.

Sporting Chance Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3), allowing all donations to be tax-deductible. All donations are greatly appreciated and will be vital as we strive to make the day to day life for many Haitian people better.
