Cameron Colvin, former NFL athlete, real estate investor and philanthropist, has pledged $200 million to Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona Foundation to help individuals achieve lifelong prosperity. Today, he presented the first installment of $10 million to Goodwill and will continue donating $10 million a year, for the next 20 years. The funds will be used to create new adult education programs and future projects to help individuals living in poverty.
“Currently, more than 721,000 Arizonans do not have a high school diploma,” said Colvin. “The best way to help these individuals move out of poverty is by allowing them to achieve their educational needs and move on to a successful career path. Goodwill’s services are critical to anyone who is looking to achieve family-sustaining employment. They are committed to helping these individuals build a better future and find a sustainable job – and for many that starts with a high school diploma. Generational wealth starts with creating more contributing members of society and by wealth we are referring to knowledge, health and self-actualization.”
