Mrs. Obama shares a lighthearted moment with a group of young girls while filming a video in support of the Girls Opportunity Alliance.

Our mission is to inspire, empower, and connect people to change their world.

The Obama Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation established in 2014 to carry on President and Mrs. Obama’s lifelong goals to empower active citizens, build stronger communities, and create lasting change at the local, national, and global level. The Foundation oversees planning for the future Obama Presidential Center, as well as a range of domestic and global programs. The Foundation calls the South Side of Chicago home and is headquartered just a few blocks away from the future site of the Obama Presidential Center.

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors, chaired by civic leader Martin H. Nesbitt.
