The Ultimate Fan Foundation was built on leveraging Sports, Entertainment, Business and Land Development as a tool for Social and Inclusive Development , Sustainability & Peace to assist in Eradicating the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals by 2030.
It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment. Many of us are familiar with the African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child.” The truth is, it “takes a village” to achieve just about any meaningful change in our world from fighting disease to uniting for peace.
For many years, purpose driven organizations believed that change could result from a handful of generous supporters, vocal advocates or committed volunteers. Today, in our highly fragmented world, we know that the most effective change makers inspire participation at a broader and deeper level. “The Ultimate Fan Foundation” (TUFF) is that broader and deeper level.
The Ultimate Fan Foundation is committed to Eradicating the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and transforming every community of need into the best place for ALL citizens to live, learn, and work. The TUFF organization is working to make this vision a reality through a comprehensive strategic empowerment agenda that includes educational programs & services, advocacy, partnerships, and coalition building within the following three Strands of Empowerment:
The Ultimate Fan Foundation (TUFF) Global Sustainability Development Plan (GSDP) is predicated on the impact that sports and entertainment has on development and peace around the world. Our Global Villages face unprecedented Challenges, Disparities and Poverty and high rates of chronic disease and disorders, increasing social isolation and disconnection from supportive people, governments and businesses.
TUFF’s GSDP is designed to assist the children and the families of these children in the relief of immediate financial strain and services related to the sustainability and well being of the family and child. As well as the supportive plan of continuing the personal and professional development dreams and accomplishments of sports and entertainment executives in developing and sustaining the communities they serve.
Unfortunately, there are more challenges than organizations with the capacity to do something about them. TUFF looks to become one of a small number of organizations that can respond on a local, national and global level in the attainment of reaching the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals through sports and entertainment by 2030.
The Ultimate Fan Foundation, TUFF is a 501c3 Global Non Profit organization who’s mission is to foster the enrichment of the lives of children and their families, who suffer from countless diseases and disorders, hunger and homelessness and Eradicate poverty that plagues our society.
When it comes to The Ultimate Fan Foundation, TUFF’s Global Village, we understand the quote, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Every single business and person has the responsibility for taking care of the 7.7 + Billion people and millions of species of biodiversity on the planet that makes up our global village.Our Earth provides us with food, shelter & with most of our requirements. Thus, for the sustainability of our planet, TUFF and its people, will fulfill our responsibilities towards Mother Nature as a global citizen to handover a clean & green planet to our future generations.Our efforts will not be small as TUFF’s Athletes and Entertainers will lead the charge of uniting our Global Village together towards nature conservation to preserve our other Earth, it’s the only one we got.
“Schuye LaRue, shown in the District, was a star basketball player at the University of Virginia and drafted into the WNBA. But she has been living on the streets for years. (Bonnie Jo Mount/The Washington Post) One of the most critical challenges facing our athletes and entertainers is retaining and maintaining their financial and brand value. More often, when the lights go out or the game is over, and the last of the movie credits are gone, they are questioning their value and their wealth has diminished.
This worrisome trend bodes serious consequences for them, their families as well as our youth, profession, and society. TUFF’s Athletes & Entertainer Villages will find success in offering Athlete’s and Entertainers housing accommodation, clinical, wellness and behavioral health services and specialized shared cohort learning experiences, called Learning Communities (LCs), which integrate curricular and extracurricular activities and provide a context for both intellectual and social development.
TUFF’s Veteran Villages refers to a supportive yet temporary type of accommodation that is meant to bridge the gap from homelessness to permanent housing by offering structure, supervision, support (for addictions and mental health, for instance), life skills, and in some cases, education and training.
“Transitional is conceptualized as an intermediate step between emergency crisis and permanent housing. It is more long term, service intensive and private than emergency shelters, yet remains time limited to stays of three months to three years.
These Villages will create a sense of place for each veteran and family member by incorporating other critical transitional services such as clinical, wellness and behavioral health services all under the nation’s top rated military health care program; all on public transit connected campuses.
Our communities are in great need of development, jobs, residential and commercial development. The Opportunity Zones allows a financial development model that promotes Economic Development and Empowerment as well as Gentrification.
The issues surrounding homelessness encompass many of society’s most pervasive social concerns like hunger, displaced families, substance abuse, serious mental illness, post traumatic stress disorder and chronic health problems.
The reasons people fall into homelessness are as varied and unique as the people themselves, stemming from factors such as lack of education, limited job skills, no personal support systems, deep poverty, job loss and lack of affordable housing.
TUFF’s Community Villages provides one on one case management and connection to housing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. In addition, TUFF provides traditional street outreach and engagement, housing locator services and assistance with helping section 8 housing clients (and others) to remain housed.
TUFF recognizes the power of uniting athletes and entertainers in a single corporate structure to spur business and economic growth around the world to attain the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals by 2030.Over the next decade, the potential impact of athletes and entertainers on the global economy as business and land developers, producers, entrepreneurs, employees and consumers will be at least as significant as that of China and India.By 2030 the global population will reach 8.5 billion, 9.7 billion by 2050 and exceed 11 billion in 2100, while the World Gross Domestic Product, (GDP) will reach $160 Trillion by 2030, $350 Trillion by 2050 and exceed $750 Trillion by 2100.“If 1% of the World’s Annual GDP went to Global Human Benefit, UN Sustainability Development Goals are met, NOW THAT’S TUFF!”

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.Affordable, scalable solutions are now available to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy.
