About The Gary & Vivienne Player Foundation

The Gary and Vivienne Player Foundation continues the work and legacy of Gary and Vivienne Player to provide vulnerable and underprivileged children with a safe and nurturing environment in which to thrive.

One in six children in the USA live in poverty. Millions are reported neglected each year. The Foundation’s mission is to support organizations whose work positively impacts the lives of these vulnerable children. The vision of the Gary & Vivienne Player Foundation is inspired by research which proves that intergenerational poverty can be broken in three key ways - education, health and housing.
