CHANGING THE GAME FOR COACHES AND THEIR FAMILIES

At the Big Man Foundation, we're not just a charity; we're a family of game-changers, dedicated to transforming the lives of athletic coaches and their families. Coaches, the unsung heroes shaping futures, deserve a support system, and that's where we come in.

OUR MISSION: A LIGHT IN THE GAME

​We're not your average 501(c)3 nonprofit. We're on a mission to alleviate and prevent hardships for coaches and their families, recognizing their selflessness and impact on young lives. Join us in making a difference and changing the game for those who dedicate their lives to coaching excellence.

Why What We Do Matters

Research shows that coaches are monumental in shaping young lives. We believe in the profound impact coaches make on personal growth, self-confidence, and overall well-being. Yet, their influence often goes unnoticed. The Big Man Foundation began in 2020 to honor Coach Jamal Powell's legacy, a coach whose life, principles, and service continue to inspire us.
