Meet Our Founder

The James H. Sweat Foundation was established by Anthony Sweat the visionary founder who shared a common commitment to fostering positive change as his Grandfather Mr. James H. Sweat had inspired.

Our Mission

James H. Sweat Foundation is a non-profit organization founded on the principles of my great grandfather, James Henry Sweat, who believed that children and elderly were the people who drove the world – children because they are the future, and elderly because they are full of wisdom. It is our mission to serve the elderly with compassion and to give children the foundation needed to make future positive contributions to their community.

Childhood Education

Recognizing that children are the cornerstone of our future, it is imperative to ensure they have a stable foundation upon which to build their lives. We collaborate with community members to construct secure learning environments for both children and staff, while also assisting in the provision of essential school supplies.

The Meals the Means offers an essential assistance service to families caring for their unwell children, a demographic often strained for time, financial resources, and energy to prepare nutritious, homemade meals.

Sports Education

Sports education plays a pivotal role in the holistic development of youth and children, offering a myriad of physical, mental, and social benefits such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. Through generous contributions, we empower and support these budding athletes, providing the necessary financial resources to establish and sustain sports teams for kids.


At the heart of our organization lies a passionate commitment to supporting our community, and we achieve this by conducting fundraising efforts for various impactful causes. Through a dynamic combination of events and monetary or item donations, we strive to address the diverse needs of our community.


Our organization hosts a diverse array of events, each contributing to our mission of making a positive impact in the community, and we invite individuals to join us in these endeavors by volunteering their time.By generously donating their time and skills, volunteers become integral to the fabric of our organization, helping us to achieve our goals and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.


Our commitment to education extends beyond the classroom, as we firmly believe in seeing the educational journey through to its culmination. To empower and uplift members of our community, we proudly offer scholarships that pave the way for further education.
The Danny Black Scholarship.
The Kelia Clark Scholarship.
The Terry and Brenda Holder Scholarship.
