The mission of the Shawn Carter Foundation is to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships further their education at post secondary institutions. The Shawn Carter Foundation was established in 2003 as a public charity ("Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund") by Shawn Carter and his mother, Gloria Carter. Since the Foundation's inception, funds raised have supported initiatives to empower youth and communities in need through the Foundation's signature scholarship fund, annual college tours, study abroad experiences, counseling initiatives, and giveback programs.
