Our Mission

Durant Family Charitable Foundation

The mission of the Durant Family Foundation (DFF) is to enrich the lives of at-risk youth from low-income backgrounds through educational, athletic and social programs. Since 2013, DFF has developed direct programs and initiatives to support youth across the US, in Kevin Durant’s hometown, and internationally. Additionally, the foundation has allocated grants to support programs addressing homelessness, youth athletics, girls empowerment, social justice, and disaster relief.

We plan to turn the Durant Center into a thriving ecosystem of community-centric public services. We are also excited to announce the opening of DFF’s headquarters.

As of this year, we have celebrated the high school graduation of 88 Durant Center scholars: 51 graduates in 2022 and another 37 graduates in 2023.

As part of College Track’s 10-year promise we will continue to support those students through college graduation!

Those seniors will also be tapping into $140K in merit-based scholarships provided by College Track.

Build It And They Will Ball

The goal of BUILD IT AND THEY WILL BALL is to increase the number of high quality basketball courts accessible to underprivileged youth across the world. Kevin Durant’s global travels have inspired him to connect with the next generation of players who will be leading the game. Launched in 2015, this initiative has completed 30 court renovations in 18 cities in North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2024, we will be completing our first project in Africa.
