BENEFITING: TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR FOUNDATION
THE STORY: The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) is home to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, just outside of Atlanta in Stone Mountain, Georgia. TASF was founded in 1997 originally as the Shakur Family Foundation by Afeni Shakur, mother of multi-talented Tupac Amaru Shakur. Since its inception TASF has offered performing arts camps, essay competitions, youth book clubs, foreign exchange programs, visual arts workshops, community development projects, and scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate degrees.
Today, the organization needs your help to continue expanding. The next phase is to build out a performance theater on the center's compound. The theater will be in great company with the performing arts center and peace garden.
For nearly 15 years, the Foundation’s programs have served youth of all social and economic backgrounds, giving countless young people the courage to get off the streets and learn vital skills that have the potential to positively impact their communities.
The children and volunteers of the center have been doing their best to maintain the grounds. Extra help is needed, so the children can perform on-site for the community rather than being transported to another location. The theater will serve as a community jewel that people can be proud of.
