Grant Cardone Foundation - Let's Teach Success To Those Who Think It's Out Of Reach


Let’s teach success to those who think it’s out of reach. – GC

Our Mission

To provide mentoring and financial literacy education to adolescents in underserved and at-risk populations, especially those without a father figure.

Why the System is Broken

No one teaches underprivileged kids about money, how to work or how to have a voice in this world. They aren’t taught how to manage money, set goals, or any other practical skills for success. This lack of guidance can turn them down the wrong path, oftentimes leading them to become gang members, looters, or money marchers. This is not just an inner city issue, but rather a  worldwide epidemic. At least 24,000,000 kids globally are being raised in households without a father present, and the statistics of fatherless kids are undeniable. Children without fathers are more likely to be poor, involved in drugs and alcohol abuse, drop out of school and suffer from mental and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as a teen.

“Thank you Grant Cardone and the entire Grant Cardone Foundation. You guys are an inspiration to me, making my actual business [a reality] and I just can’t say thank you enough.”

• Brooke Weaver, Tumaini D.C.

“Being able to be here in front of these super influential people, people I follow and look up to, and be able to present my ideas and have them receive that and connect to my vision, it was amazing”

• Sarah Rice, Tumaini, D.C.

“This program is a really good program, and now I’m going to do really big things when I grow up!”

• Student, Circle of Commerce

“Today’s experience was really eye opening. I never really thought about going into entrepreneurship, but this experience really opened up a different aspect [that] as I go through my college experience, I might dabble in”

• Student, 5000 Role Models

“It was a great experience, probably one of the best experiences I’ve had in terms of motivation. I learned the importance of focusing on your goals, really going through [my goals], and not just thinking about what I want to do, but really going for it every single day”

• Student, 5000 Role Models

“One takeaway I learned today was to keep a positive mindset, whatever you do, and to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.”

• Student, Overtown Youth Center

“One important thing I learned today is that you have to set your goals, and have a vision of what you want to do in the future.”

• Student, Overtown Youth Center

“One thing I learned today is to not let others get you down, and instead have the courage to go further, and to always have goals and [a plan] to reach those goals”

I Want to Help Underprivileged Kids

While Grant is certainly passionate about his numerous business interests and helping others succeed, he is equally devoted to providing support and guidance for at-risk youths, which is why he has founded The Grant Cardone Foundation.

“I want to help kids and young adults who need mentoring, direction and guidance. I know how badly I needed a father figure and how painful it is growing up without a strong role model.. I told my mom when I was 16, ‘one day I will be successful and I am going to help a lot of people.’ Now I am delivering on that promise with The Grant Cardone Foundation. If you know of a child that needs mentoring please let us know. If you know a group with a similar mission please reach out to us as we want to collaborate with other groups to provide energy and resources to kids in need. I promise you that the money we raise will go to help kids and young adults who need it most.” – Grant Cardone
