My hope for this foundation is to turn it into a community where all of us can come together to help our fellow brothers and sisters overcome overwhelming odds so that one day they can do the same for others.

Oprah has said that education is critical to leveling the economic playing field and opening opportunities to everyone. The Foundation prioritizes making quality education accessible and giving leaders a chance to lift themselves and others.


Community Outreach

In addition to education, the OWCF has always supported grassroots organizations in their efforts to lift the most vulnerable in their communities. In 2020, with millions of people struggling to buy food, pay rent and find health care, the foundation has pivoted during the pandemic to commit more resources to local groups. In particular, we’ve launched initiatives in partnership with local organizations in my “Hometowns” of Chicago, Nashville, Milwaukee and Kosciusko, Mississippi.
