For South African-born Canadian Steve Nash, sports have proven an effective platform from which to empower change and create opportunities for growth and development—not just for players, either.
“Growing up, my parents really modelled a community ethic for my siblings and me—it was just a given that part of existing in society meant contributing in some way,” Nash recalled. “When I entered the NBA and had an opportunity to give back, we began right away.”
Founded in 2004 by Nash and his family, the Steve Nash Foundation (SNF) works to assist underserved children in their health, personal development, education, and enjoyment of life.
Through a range of programs, SNF focuses on investing in resources that children need to grow, learn, and thrive, translating Nash’s legacy of assists to benefit underserved and vulnerable children worldwide.
