#GivingTuesday is TOMORROW!!!! Support Artest University!

More Info

Artest University (AU), is a non-profit 501c3 organization for the youth founded by Metta World Peace & his father, Ron Artest Sr.  The mission of Artest University focuses on parenting and partnership working with the youth of underprivileged communities through sports activities, education, financial literacy, and mental health awareness.

In the Spring of 2020 we will be hosting our 1st Annual Artest University Gala. The Gala will be hosted at the Manhattan Penthouse located on 14th St. & 5th Ave. We are honoring several respected individuals within the sports, entertainment, & philanthropic industries. There will be several notable celebrities in attendance including Julius Randle (NY Knicks), Frank Shamrock (Legendary MMA/UFC Champion), Chamique Holdsclaw (Tennessee University & WNBA legend) amongst many others. So far we have received donations from Glenn Close, Metta World Peace, various NBA teams, Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan, & Rose & Kiernan. The funds raised for our 1st Annual Artest University Gala will be used to sponsor our youth who are going off to college this year & fund Artest University overall so that can implement financial literacy programs & sponsor their basketball endeavors.

We are seeking sponsors and sponsorship for Artest University, so that we can continue to inspire and support the youth of our community & beyond.  Would you, your company, and or organization be willing to support our children for a brighter future?

Thank you for your support!

"An athlete cannot run with money in his pockets. He must run with hope in his heart and dreams in his head." Emil Zatopek

Its the weekend and our girls spent their afternoon sharpening their basketball skills. We are raising funds to supply them with new uniforms and $60 supplies one uniform.

This summer they will compete in AAU and we are preparing for that now.

Let's help them start the season with all they need to compete.

Thank you for your support.

Happy HUMP DAY!!!

We hope you are having a productive week. This week we had our monthly meeting and we have so much in store for you this year from basketball tournaments, health clinics, workshops, movie nights, and more!

Right now we are focused on raising funds to supply our Queensbridge team with new uniforms to compete in AAU this year. Many of our youth come from underprivileged communities and they benefit greatly from your support.

We give our youth the skills they need to secure scholarships and prepare them for college and transition into adulthood. With your help we are able to provide the guidance and resources that our youth needs. Children truly are our future. One day they will become our doctors, our policy makers, our children's teachers. Let's equip them with the tools they need to make this world a brighter place.

1 uniform cost $60 but every contribution to $700 makes a difference.

Thank You,
TAF

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone arrived in the New Year refreshed and ready for 2019. We are definitely looking forward to this years activities and growth at TAF. Thank you all for your continued support.

For a couple of days our fundraiser page was experiencing some technical difficulties. If you tried to make a donation and was unable to do so you can make your donation today.

We haven't given up on our goal of supplying our teams with new basketball uniforms and neither should you. Remember, every cent helps

Happy Sunday!

After all the Christmas hustle and bustle I am sure the next wave of frenzy is in the works for New Years Eve. Take the day to relax, reflect, and most of all be thankful for another year.

We hope everyone has had a prosperous and blessed year.

We are still accepting donations for our uniform drive. Please share with your friends and family.

Remember that in giving there are many ways to give whether it is becoming a volunteer, making a donation, or contributing talents or services to TAF.

Thank you for your love & support.

"No one has ever become poor by giving." -Anne Frank

If only we could apply the power of these words we would find how much helping others releases blessings for ourselves. I find the greatest satisfaction in doing for others. Whether I have it to give or not I have learned the value of assisting others. When we do so we relinquish the opportunity for others to do the same.

I once sat at a stop light in my car watching a man beg for money. It was a fairly long stoplight and after watching for what seemed like forever I pulled out $1 and gave it to him. I watched 3 other people do the same. Did they do it because I did? I don't know, but I do believe in the power of influence.

We can influence the lives of the youth supported through TAF with $1. That's all it takes to gain momentum. $1 could make a difference. One share of this link to your Facebook page could make a difference.

Won't you make a difference with me today by donating to and sharing this fundraiser? If you can't give please share with your community.

Thank you for your support.

Peace and blessings to you.

-Brittany on behalf of TAF

Did you know that sharing a fundraiser on average raises $97 so even if you have to be a little conservative because it is the holidays we totally understand, but sharing this fundraiser is free and still helpful.

I bet if you got $100 for every share you would do it right?

Sharing is Caring....hugs to you for sharing this fundraiser and helping us reach our goal :-)

HAPPY MONDAY!!!!

Let's make December the month to REMEMBER.

We have 22 days left to raise funds for new uniforms for The Artest Foundation. Can we reach our goal? Not without your help!

Check out this photo op when Ron had Jeff Gardere speaking the community in Harlem about Mental Health. Just one of the many things TAF does to make a difference.

Thank You Ron for all that you do!
