I decided on the name The Shawn O'Dare Foundation to not just leave a lasting positive legacy for my family in my hometown of Vero Beach, but to honor and bring more attention to who I am named after... my late great HERO of an Uncle, Shawn T. O'Dare who passed away selflessly in the line of duty.
This foundation will directly impact the lives of many children and families in the Indian River County area. We will aim to give every child an even playing field to accomplish all their academic and athletic goals. We will be providing scholarships, tutoring, meals, equipment, coaching and training amongst other things. No child should be at a disadvantage for reasons that are out of their control.
We are a 501(c)(3) and our EIN is 88-2922458.
