Platinum Charities Foundation was founded in 2010. Since the beginning, PCF has hosted two free football camps each year with over 300 adolescents per year in attendance. Some of the young men who have gone through PCF’s All Pro Skills Camp; Shelton Gibson of West Virginia, Jamal Adams of LSU, tony Brown of Univ. of Alabama, De’Niro Laster of Univ. of Kentucky, and many others, have gone on to have successful collegiate football careers and incredible opportunities to gain an education. In 2017 and with the continued support of USA Football, NFL PLAY 60, NFL PA, and NFL Alumni, PCF looks forward to hosting three camps per year and empowering these young men to be the best they can be on and off the field.
In 2012 Platinum Charities created a scholarship program for high school seniors and college students who are in their freshman, sophomore, or junior year. Since its creation, PCF has distributed over $25,000.00 in scholarships to students in undeserved communities.
For the past two years, PCF has completed renovations for two homes and begun a domestic violence campaign. Put Yourself In Her Shoes, bring an end to abuse is a campaign that heightens the awareness about domestic violence and provides homes in each of the 32 NFL cities for abused women and their children.
Without the on going support of donors, volunteers, celebrity friends, and corporate sponsors; Lexus, McDonalds, Ketel One Vodka, Edible Arrangements, Harley Davidson, and many others, PCF would not be able to carry out it’s mission and reach it’s vision.
The developmental initiatives and programs that are supported and spearheaded by Platinum Charities duly reflects Mike’s belief that dreams can come true if community, corporations, and celebrities unite for charity.
