Hi, my name is Charmaine Clark. Thank you for visiting our site and seeking more information about my foundation, Living to Inspire. I have always had a passion for helping others, and as I have grown and gained a wealth of knowledge from my experiences, I now vow to pass on lessons learned and provide as many opportunities to the younger generation as possible.
I am from Hinesville, Georgia, where I attended and graduated from Bradwell Institute. I was fortunate enough to earn an athletic scholarship to the University of Miami to play basketball, where I also earned a bachelor degree in Business Administration. I later played professionally in Iceland.
As an athlete in Georgia and Florida, as well as overseas, I was able to touch quite a few lives just by attending camps, talking to students, and being a positive role model. I have decided to continue to use that same platform and continue my efforts to inspire others.
I started Inspirational Living with two groups in mind - the children I would like to assist and the great, influential people in my life that have a similar goal to help others. The organization was created to identify children who can benefit from having another positive role model in their lives. I have created a team of mentors, who are set to take on the challenges alongside me.
Thus far, the organization has sponsored individuals to attended basketball camps with the University of Miami's women's basketball program, as well as trips to watch local university teams play. We've even fed the homeless and donated toys to a local children's hospital. With the support of the mentors within the program, as well as support from the community, such events will occur on a much more frequent basis!

Inspirational Living Foundation Inc. is a non-profit organization that focuses on providing mentorship and volunteer opportunities throughout the community in an effort to uplift others and build a better environment for all residents, especially children and teenagers.
The foundation is comprised of various components, to include the sponsorship of local talent to developmental camps and collegiate and professional sporting events, to promote health and fitness in the community.
In addition to sponsorships to events, the foundations second component is community involvement. We will also sponsor community events ourselves, with a goal of uplifting others, bringing everyone together, and highlighting the positives.
The final component of the organization is the promotion of continuing education. In an effort to assist a local student during their collegiate journey, the foundation will award a scholarship to one rising senior annually, who meets the criteria of our Building a Legacy Foundation (BAL), for the funding of school supplies, books and a laptop.
When all three components come together, Inspirational Living Foundation Inc. will have a strong, positive impact on the community and the residents.
