The Tarence Kinsey Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit was established by Tarence Kinsey, Jr. on September 21, 2009 for the purpose of establishing and supporting community projects, especially those involving our youth and their families in Tampa Bay and the surrounding areas.

In 2012 – 2013, the TK foundation helped four students receive full college scholarships by providing them with mentors, tutors, motivators, and educational guidance throughout their high school years.

Our Goal is to increase the amount of kids we help every year by providing more college scholarships, mentorship programs, life skills events, and additional educational and athletic resources to help better the lives of our youth in need.

Our ultimate vision is to enrich the quality of life for our youth and their families. We have a strong focus on helping kids understanding their potential, proper decision making and commitment to family.

Our mission is to empower and motivate our youth by developing and fostering goal setting, accountability and social responsibility skills. We will instill a “Yes I can” commitment to achievement with focus on academics, health, physical fitness and career preparedness.
