Through our mission to enlighten, encourage, and empower, the Tavis Smiley Foundation, founded in 1999, works to develop and mentor future leaders by providing leadership training that will promote and enhance a greater quality of life for them, their communities and the world. The Foundation seeks to examine barriers and identify solutions to alleviate poverty in the United States across all sectors including youth, underserved communities and families. It is recognized as a nonprofit public charity under section 501©3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
