About the Foundation
The Maurice Lucas Foundation challenges students to discover who they can be through enriching and life-changing experiences. It models, teaches, mentors, coaches and counsels students from middle school through high school – and beyond. It is building resilient citizens and leaders through its academic, character and physical development programs.
Maurice Lucas had a storied 14-year career in professional basketball, but off the court is where he built his legacy. Maurice passed away Oct. 31, 2010, at age 58. Today, the Maurice Lucas Foundation carries on his legacy by working with youth to help them realize their individual potential through education and sport.
