Our Mission & Vision
The Derek Lewis Foundation’s mission is to improve community health through healthy prevention and education. The Derek Lewis Foundation has two primary focuses:
1. To improve community health by providing awareness and education on the risks of obesity
2. To empower the next generation of youth through scholastic endeavors.
DLF partners with a number of organizations to achieve its mission. Our partners include the nonprofits, businesses, educational institutions and private donors whom may co-fund programs or assist in bringing together multiple parties working to improve community health.
The Derek Lewis Foundation is an independent foundation founded by Dr. Derek Lewis in 1993 as an avenue to give back to the community which has helped him in pursuit of success. Dr. Lewis has a passion of creating and providing opportunities for the less fortunate and underserved.
DLF has served the community through a variety of services, programs, and sponsorships. Most funding is done in the Central Arkansas area though not limited too. DLF touches lives regardless of race, social class or gender.
