My vision for the Sean Anderson Foundation is simply to make the lives of young people better. I want to be an inspiration to young people, by showing them that hard work and determination pay off, to be an example of what can happen when you follow your dreams, and to be an instrument of encouragement for us all to help ourselves and to support one another. Detroit and the entire country have shown me so much love and I passionately want to return that love.
The mission of the Sean Anderson Foundation is to assist in the education, health, safety and well-being of Detroit area school aged youth as well as disadvantaged youth in other areas across the nation.

The Foundation makes distributions to other 501(c)3 organizations, established charitable programs, and to school aged youth and their families who reside within the Detroit metropolitan area as well as disadvantaged youth in other areas across the nation. Specifically, the Foundation strives to provide funding for charitable programs dedicated to (1) combating homelessness, (2) providing health care assistance for the uninsured and underinsured, (3) offering supplemental educational support and (4) providing arts, cultural and recreational programs.
Our support is primarily aimed at existing charitable programs, but may also be distributed for the creation and development of new organizations with objectives that are consistent with the Foundation’s purposes. As the organization evolves and grows, the Foundation plans to sponsor its own educational seminars and outreach programs.
