We are incredibly thankful that Shane has so many fans who have been willing to support Take Charge. However, we have a small staff who are dedicated to fulfilling our mission of providing deserving students with quality educational opportunities. Please do not contact us for autographs, personal requests to meet or interview Shane, to have him appear at an event, with fan mail, etc. We just don’t have the capacity to handle any requests unrelated to the Foundation. Thank you for understanding.
While the Battier Take Charge Foundation has received tremendous support from Shane’s teams over the years, the Foundation is not affiliated with any team, and thus we are not able to provide tickets to basketball (or any other) games.
The Take Charge Foundation has partnered with organizations in Detroit, Houston and Miami, through which they identify worthy candidates who then go through an application and interview process before being selected as scholarship recipients. We are always trying to grow and expand our reach, and know that there are thousands of deserving students across the country, but these are the only scholarships we are able to offer at this time. We cannot consider any additional requests seeking funds from the Foundation.
