About the D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation
A Breath of Fresh Air
The Lampkin Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (Tax ID: 81-5424366) 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. The Lampkin Foundation is governed by a volunteer group of board of directors chaired by Jesus Andrade III.
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 Jimmy Richard Henry Award, in honor of the late Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff, Jimmie Richard Henry. The Foundations initiatives focus on providing resources and manpower to projects that foster opportunity for under-served communities and minority populations.
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 as many people as he can by developing and participating in projects and initiatives that impact and benefit the largest number of people in a region in the largest way possible.
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.
The Lampkin Foundation was established to create positive opportunities and change for individuals, communities, and environments. Our goal is to sponsor and develop programs and initiatives that lead to the evolution of stronger communities and positively impact individuals wanting to lead happier and healthier lives.
