About Us


Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?’” The Onward and Upward Empowerment Foundation exists today to answer that question. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to serve the disadvantaged population of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. We concentrate our efforts on three major causes: scholarship, community impact and benevolence. Not only does our foundation operate with initiatives in place to support our causes, but our foundation also works with other local nonprofits to serve the needs of citizens throughout the greater Dallas area.
