The Tim Duncan Foundation
For years, Tim Duncan has been giving back to his community. Since coming to San Antonio, Tim has supported many wonderful
causes. In an attempt to give back even more, Tim decided to create a foundation of his own. Therefore, on December 21,
2001, Tim announced the creation of the Tim Duncan Foundation. The Foundation funds nonprofit organizations in the areas of
education, youth sports and recreation, and health awareness and research. Funds for the Foundation are raised through
special events and fundraisers. To date, the Tim Duncan Foundation has raised over $650,000 to support
its mission by supporting non-profit organizations and programs in South Texas, US Virgin Islands, and in North
What Tim has done to Support Our Community
Since the first annual event in January 2000, the Tim Duncan Bowling For Dollar$ Charity Bowl-A-Thon has raised
over $650,000 for Breast and Prostate Cancer detection, prevention, and treatment. From these proceeds, Tim has donated
$142,000 to the San Antonio branch of the American Cancer Society to aid in nationwide, cutting-edge Breast and Prostate
Cancer research. Also, $85,000 to the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District to provide free Breast Cancer screenings,
mobile mammography, and follow-up diagnostic testing to over 400 uninsured, low-income women in the San Antonio community.
The success of Tim Duncan's "Beat Cancer" promotion enabled the Cancer Therapy and Research Center to receive a
$50,000 contribution in May 2000.
In 2001, the NBA recognized Tim for his commitment to his community by
awarding the Home Team Community Service
Award. As part of this award, Tim selected the San Antonio's Children's Shelter, the largest and oldest shelter for abused,
abandoned, and neglected children in Bexar County to receive $25,000.
Tim announced his Foundation with a donation of a new 2001 Gunn Chevrolet Express Van to Roy Maas' Youth
In 2002, the Tim Duncan Foundation donated a 4-player Basketball Video Arcade game to the San Antonio Downtown
Through funds raised at the SlamDuncan Charity Golf Classic, the Tim Duncan Foundation donated
$50,000 to Kids Sports Network, a nonprofit 501(c)3 association that promotes quality sports for kids.
Looking Towards the Future
We truly believe we can make a huge difference in the lives of many San
Antonians with the funds we raise. The
Foundation helps support many worthwhile programs such as Tim Duncan’s Character Program which has recently been implemented
in San Antonio’s schools to help recognize students that demonstrate strong character values and civic responsibility.
The Tim Duncan Foundation has expanded this program to include St Croix, Tim's home in the U.S. Virgin Islands; and
to Winston-Salem N.C. area schools near Wake Forest University where Tim attended college.
Thanks to the involvement and support of our community, we have achieved success thus far with our past charity events. We are excited about the opportunity to make an even bigger impact on the community with all of our events this year.
