Welcome to the Andy Roddick Foundation
The Andy Roddick Foundation celebrates the moments when children realize what they were born to do. Because the Andy Roddick Foundation believes pursuing their passion makes children happy.
We believed we could be an artist. An astronaut. Or World No. 1. Because we had a champion.
A grown-up who called us by name. Who saw our potential before we did. How high we could fly. And how far we could go.
Who time after time exposed us to new things. The first time we picked up a racket. Painted on a canvas. Or launched a rocket. In that moment, we knew what we were born to do.
For every grown-up who showed us what we could become -- every mother, father, teacher, coach and mentor -- we give thanks. And, we give back.
We are the Andy Roddick Foundation. Sparked by a boy who became a champion. No compromise ...
Born To ...
We create new chances for all children to grow in self-worth and confidence — all during months and times of day when statistics show they’re typically most at risk and falling behind.
With the Austin Independent School District and our partners, we provide high-quality enrichment for children every day after the bell.
Each spring we take 4th and 5th graders on a three-day, two-night camping trip. For many, it's their first overnight experience away from home.
We’ve handcrafted a free, six-week program to keep children mentally and physically active during the summer.
Focusing on the Whole Child
It’s not just about academics. It’s not just about athletics. Our children not only learn how to do better in school, they find new ways to ignite their passion — and to engage in learning and life.
We help children understand how the world works and how to solve problems.
We help children know how they feel and how other people feel.
We help children stay physically fit and healthy.
Make a gift today and join a group of supporters and friends who are working to give every child every chance to find what they were born to do.
