ABOUT ALL STARS HELPING KIDS
Based in Santa Clara, CA, All Stars Helping Kids (ASHK) is dedicated to disrupting the cycle of poverty affecting underprivileged youth in the Bay Area. The organization got its start in 1989 when NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and his wife Karen raised $100,000 in a single evening, and elected to invest it in several South Bay nonprofits fighting poverty. Since then, ASHK has grown considerably and expanded its grantee profile, using the simple formula of raising money and redistributing it to create opportunities in education, health, and life skills for disadvantaged youth.
Today, ASHK personifies its mission through venture philanthropy -- seeking, vetting, and assisting emerging nonprofits with seed funding, support and community. Investments are guided by three key aspects essential to the development of the whole child from early childhood to college: Rigorous Academics, Health & Fitness, and Life Skills. Focusing on non-profits with annual budgets of $500,000 or less, through a competitive grantee Pitch Day process, ASHK invites up to three emerging social innovation organizations to join their dynamic Cohort Program and receive $75,000 cash grants disbursed over three years. Guided by a passionate Board of Directors, the organization is leveraging its unique role as a grant maker, convener, and advocate to activate a network of changemakers committed to increasing opportunities for under-resourced youth and families.
