CHALLENGE TODAY. CHANGE TOMORROW.
CREATING IMPACT THROUGH COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS & PROGRAMS
The Mr. Davids Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that fills the gaps within our communities, providing awareness of critical community needs and providing financial support to organizations, initiatives and individuals that help improve our neighborhoods and empower the people within them.
Since its inception, Mr. Davids Flooring International has had a long philanthropic history within the local community. The company's interest to establish the Mr. Davids Foundation began in 2014, after having five successful Mr. Davids 50K Bike Challenges which began in 2009. In 2015, the Foundation organized formally and in 2016, Mr. Davids Foundation received its 501(c)(3) designation as a nonprofit charitable organization.
The annual Mr. Davids Challenge is the Foundations largest fundraising event, raising over $750,000 for community initiatives since the challenge was introduced in 2009.
Become a sponsor or donor by contributing any amount to the Mr. Davids Foundation and work with us to support our causes and your community.
The Mr. Davids Challenge consists of a non-competitive 29K bike ride and a family-friendly 5K run/walk. The Challenge brings community members, organizations, volunteers and passionate participants together to help support local, community-enrichment initiatives.
Help us put on this incredible event. Work with the fantastic men and women creating change within your community and volunteer for Mr. David's Foundation.
