PURPOSE:

Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities (PESC) is a 501 (c)(3) public charity that creates and funds unique educational experiences and enrichment opportunities for underserved children. PESC has been providing funding for children and youth programs in the North Texas community from the ESCI Golf Tournament for 4 years. Sponsorships and donations through the charity have helped grow the number of agencies receiving funds from 4 in 2010 to 47 agencies and organizations located in 5 counties in 2013. 35,000 children are beneficiaries of the proceeds of Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities.

In addition, PESC established the Team 22 program in 2012 to offer personal mentoring to underserved yet high potential youth in the Dallas area. The Team 22 program opens the door to success for these kids by providing unique opportunities that enrich their view of the future and provide a foundation for decision-making that will ensure their success. Programs have included a meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama, serving as volunteers at the SM Wright Foundation’s Christmas In The Park, attending Camp Champions, and a private tour of The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Team 22 is doubling in 2014 so that more kids will have a meaningful, personal development program.
