In His words!

"When I was a young boy growing up in the projects of Atlanta, my single mother could not afford to provide the lifestyle that many of my peers had, but she did teach me that, with hard work and perseverance, I could achieve anything even my dream of becoming heavyweight champion of the world. My membership at the Warren Memorial Boys & Girls Club exposed me to many new and exciting experiences. The caring and giving people at the Club encouraged me to become the best person that I could be inside and outside of the boxing ring.

I created the Holyfield Foundation as a way to give back the support I received as a child and to help disadvantaged young people become successful, productive adults. The Holyfield Foundation recognizes that children need guidance, support, and discipline in order to become champions. The Foundation strives to enhance the lives of youth worldwide by establishing programs and facilities dedicated to their spiritual, educational and athletic development.

With the help of corporate and individual donations, as well as my own financial contributions, the Foundation supports many organizations that assist underprivileged youth.

Please join me in my passion to make a difference in the lives of children. Let's give our kids a fighting chance!
