About T.D. Jakes Foundation
The T.D. Jakes Foundation (TDJF) provides skills, education, and training to lift underserved communities and power the modern global economy. We work to dismantle barriers to opportunity. We champion programs that advance racial and gender equity. We help companies create more diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplaces.
Our foundation is building bridges by unlocking the power of global competition through workforce training that prepares workers to compete in today’s economy through STEM/STEAM education, financial literacy and inclusion, and a laser focus to close the racial wealth gap and support minority women in corporate leadership
Founded by Chairman T.D. Jakes in 2020, the foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to building bridges to opportunity for underserved populations in the United States and around the world. The foundation operates independently from Chairman Jakes’s companies, and is governed by a Board of Directors and IRS guidelines.
