Have had the pleasure of working with the organization since 2010. All of the board members and volunteers over the years have worked so hard to help provide students with the ability to help pay for college. Truly an amazing group of people for an amazing cause!

This organization continues to grow and support the youth in the greater Schertz area by providing scholarships to Senior applicants. It is to honor Andre Booker who was tragically killed in an accident . Family friends and the local business community and others support this worthy organization. Hope you will also support their efforts.

The 34 Foundation has several fundraisers throughout the year to help raise funds for scholarships. The organization focuses on helping the youth of their community and surrounding areas. Every little bit helps a youth achieve the goal of a higher education and The 34 Foundation understands that.

One particular fundraiser that is successful and memorable is the Andre Booker Football camp. The foundation brings in talented players including several from the local area to teach young boys strong basic skills needed to be a football player and how to work as a team. My two boys have participated in this camp several times and they have a wonderful time and find new role models to look up to. I hope this particular fundraiser and organization as a whole is around for many more years. Our community's youth would greatly benefit from it.

Mr. Booker is an inspiration to every parent and individual who learns about the mission and cause of the 34 Foundation. His strength and dedicated to start a non - profit from the ground floor up is not even the most commendable part. It is the selflessness he contains to continue to raise money for others who's dream needs aiding! Since inception, the 34 Foundation has given back to the Schertz area and even further; San Marcos, Cibolo, Live Oak, Selma, San Antonio...their reach continues to extend as their name does! It has been an honor to serve with the finest board members and I hope the impact the 34 Foundation makes on others is even half what it made on me!

The 34 foundation is not only an excellent homage to Andre it's an organization that's giving back. The board members work hard to raise funds for
scholarships for college seeking students. The foundation tries to carry out the same values and morals Andre had.

when I first meet Roger we talked bout the foundation and his son I was touched by his story. He encouraged me to have my daughter apply for the scholarship that she received. but it didn't stop there. He always would ask how she was doing in school give me advice on looking for other scholarships and has become a good friend. I will continue to work for the 34 foundation trying to raise money for the kids.

This organization holds an annual football camp for youngsters age 5-13. The staff is comprised of local high school and college football players. It is a very enjoyable event for the kids and parents. We highly recommend this camp . The 34 Foundation also uses the money from the camp for its scholarships.

Great organization that gives back to the community by offering college scholarships to area high school students. Their recent fundraiser - the Andre Booker Football camp touched the lives of 44 kids. They had the opportunity to work on football drills with college football players and skilled coaches. Thank you to Dunk and his volunteers. The funds raised by this event will help in completing our commitment for a Texas State endowment as well as fund the scholarships for the upcoming year. The Executive Director's and board members' hearts are in the right area.

The 34 Foundation does a great job of trying to ensure that every dollar goes to students needing scholarships. They have helped many youth pursue higher education that might normally not have the opportunity to go to larger colleges.

This organization has worked hard to give back to our community. In events ranging from our golf tournament to the football camp. These events are all designed to raise funds for our scholarships. This is our main purpose to help defer a part of college. One of our future goals is to increase our scholarships and provide more opportunities to the students of this area and Texas.

I met Andre and his parents while he was playing football and his Father was an official I find the comments made by DONLY 1 to be very offensive and not any where close to the facts and the dedication of the many folks who have volunteered time and money to ensure young men and women in the greater Randolph area get a chance to attend college.

Knowing Andre the way that I do. I know for a fact he would not support the people running this foundation on his behalf.

This organization is about helping students in San Antonio and South Central Texas get scholarship money for college.

We hold several fundraiser events throughout the year to raise money for our organization.

Our goal is to provide more resources to the students of the area and to fulfill Andre's dream of helping others out in his community.
