Donate to the Obama Foundation


Empower the next generation of change.

Every day, the Obama Foundation empowers people to turn hope into action and positively change their world. Through our leadership programs and scholarships, we're training the next generation of changemakers. 

Through the Girls Opportunity Alliance, we're working to make sure that girls everywhere can have the same chances to pursue their dreams through education. And, through My Brother's Keeper Alliance, we're creating safe and supportive communities where boys and young men of color can find clear opportunities for success. 

Soon, these programs will have a permanent home at the Obama Presidential Center—a hub on the South Side of Chicago for program participants and visitors alike from around the globe. When the doors open, people will be able to learn about the Obamas’ story and be inspired to bring change home to their own communities.
