Why?

Because 100% of your donation goes directly to where it’s needed most, all donations big or small help us provide the most effective and sustainable support possible to communities in need.

The Lampkin Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization operating programs throughout California that have a significant impact in a wide range of issue areas, including education, economic development, climate change research, health and wellness, and providing healthy alternatives for under-served communities.

Our History

The Foundation will carry on the initiatives and work started by D’Andre Lampkin such as the Breath Giving Portraits Project, which began in 2011, and the Social Good Scholarship Fund, which started in 2016. We have added two additional programs: the Disaster Relief Effort and the DNA Initiative to address the needs of under-served communities working toward becoming stronger and more resilient. The Foundations initiatives focus on providing resources and manpower to projects that foster opportunity for under-served communities and minority populations. In many cases we are addressing the needs of communities as they arise.

A California native, D’Andre Lampkin was born and raised in the economically deprived region of South Central Los Angeles by a single mother. The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation began as one man’s dream to help community members realize the full potential of their community by encouraging them to become stakeholders and contributors of their communities’ future. Building stronger communities is not just a function of government. It only made possible through collaboration between residents, community leaders, non-profit, and for-profit organizations.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create positive opportunities and change for individuals, communities, and environments. Our goal is to sponsor and create programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities and positively impact individuals wanting to lead happier and healthier lives.

We have a vision for communities that are strong, fully engaged, and resilient; where all stakeholders are self-reliant and fully supported by sustainable ingenuity and grassroots efforts.

If only people tried to connect with the heart the way they do with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

How It Happens

The Lampkin Foundation is an operating foundation. The money raised by the Foundation is spent directly on our programs, projects, and initiatives; and not as grants to other charitable organizations.

The majority of the Lampkin Foundation’s charitable work is performed and implemented by our volunteer staff and partnering organizations. We currently operate programs within the United States that have a significant impact in a wide range of issue areas, including education, economic development, climate change research, health and wellness, and proving resources for under-served communities.
