What is our goal in the long run?
Mike and Maurkice Pouncey have a strong desire to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. Through their constant giving, the Foundation has provided more than $10 million of impact to at risk youth through grants and programs since its inception to Florida, Miami, Lakeland.
The Foundation supports numerous organizations and programs through its grant program, but also operates and funds several of its own programs for underprivileged children. The Foundation carefully selects programs that it can support financially and considers the grant program a partnership with these organizations, not just an exchange of money.
The Foundation has become a consistent and viable part of these four communities in terms of underprivileged children.
“The mission statement of Team Pouncey is broad, but it allows us to assist as many children as possible and concentrates on the two-state region. With this mission, the Foundation reaches out to children of all different backgrounds. Children need opportunities through which they can grow and learn.”
The Foundation strives to make these opportunities available to children who might not otherwise have the chance to participate and looks strongly upon abused and neglected children, boys & girls clubs, after-school programs, summer camps and foster children.The Foundation has established several programs that are operated and funded solely by the Foundation.
These programs allow us to control the environment and content for the children. Mike and Maurkice Pouncey established the Foundation with a plan to grow stronger each year, doing it the right way.
They have definitely accomplished that goal but are always striving to make it better. They emphasizes is to proceed slowly so programs are done professionally with maximum benefit to the children and we are in our ninth year of organizing our own programs and events.
Team Pouncey has a promise to inspire children and enable them to realize their potential to build a better future through community events, charitable giving, grants and other related programs. Stated goals will allow many positive opportunities for children to foster leadership, academic and social skills and to give back to their community.
