In 1993, Charles E. Ragus founded AdvoCare, a health and wellness company, with the commitment to be an advocate who cared. Today, AdvoCare has taken that commitment to the next level by establishing the AdvoCare Foundation. The foundation focuses on the life-destroying epidemic of childhood obesity in an effort to help fulfill its larger mission – to help all children be happy, healthy, and safe.
Only a few years old and we’re already making an impact. With the help and generosity of the AdvoCare Foundation founders, our supporters, and our communities, we’ve been able to make a huge impact in our short time. This is only the beginning.
With the help and generosity of our founders and our supporters, the AdvoCare Foundation has begun to make an impact in the lives of children in need. And this is only the beginning.

The earlier you invest in a child, the greater the hope that child has to live a safe, healthy and happy life. Children surrounded by elevated risk factors such as crime, family violence, poor health, and high-poverty are the most at-risk. That’s why we focus on funding programs with long-term solutions to improving the physical health and wellness of children in need in the communities that need it most.
The Foundation has one annual deadline: February 28. Grant requests for program support are strongly encouraged; capital requests may be considered. Successful proposals are those with an emphasis on year-round programming and effort to promote positive change in the health and wellness habits of children. The majority of grants from the AdvoCare Foundation are one year in duration, at an average of $25,000 per grant. On occasion, multi-year support is awarded.
The Foundation believes in supporting communities where AdvoCare distributors are located and engaged. We value long-term partnerships with grantees, and give funding preference to previous grantees. We will not fund endowments, individual schools/sports teams, camps, or national organizations without a strong track record of local community buy-in.
