Recently, I realized I never shared why I created the Grant Cardone Foundation. I’ve mentioned a few reasons in the past — but not everything. Now, it’s time I told the WHOLE story…
As many of you may or may not know, my dad passed away suddenly when I was 10 years old. That tragic event left my mother to support and raise my four siblings on her own…
Watching my mom struggle with finances was difficult for me to watch. For that reason, I made the decision that one day I would be rich.
So I started studying all the famous, super successful people I heard about. But, there was a problem…
None of those wealthy people were disclosing:
- How do you earn capital?
- Where do you invest it?
- What were the fundamentals of creating wealth?
This lack of transparency was frustrating to me, so I made another commitment…
The Grant Cardone Foundation is Fulfilling a Promise
The second promise I made was even more important than to become well-off myself…
I promised that when I learned how to succeed, I would share it with others.

It took me a few years, but I did figure it out. Then, I used my knowledge to help other entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
Still, it didn’t feel like it was enough.
I started wondering about the young men and women who also were reaching for financial freedom and trying to find tools…
With this question on my mind, I decided to establish The Grant Cardone Foundation.
The purpose of the Foundation would be to equip young people with financial literacy education. That way, future generations could thrive — especially in underserved and neglected communities.
So, there you have it. Ultimately, I created the Grant Cardone Foundation to give back in the best way I knew how…
Getting knowledge to our youth so they can build prosperous futures.
They deserve the chance to be great,
