At the Roger and Tatum Foundation we believe that while our nation provides basic social services and assistance to all citizens, there is need for more altruism, and aid specifically regarding the provision of basic human needs. We believe every human being deserves a warm place to sleep and a hot meal. Our aims are quite simple: we want to provide those things, and one day evolve into an organization that fights larger battles, including providing assistance to cancer sufferers and other fatal illnesses.
The impetus for the Roger and Tatum foundation arose out of the desire of siblings to utilize their personal entrepreneurial success to help advance altruistic aims. Meet the team and learn more below.
