Over the years, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, President Roberta Shields and The Ludacris Foundation have achieved notable success and recognition for their philanthropic and community work. We’re honored to do work that matters.

We’ve been named as one of the top twenty “Leading Philanthropy Foundations” by Black Enterprise magazine and featured in The Robb Report’s Worth Magazine as well as The Chronicle of Philanthropy – a newspaper of the non-profit world for outstanding efforts provided to urban communities. In 2015, The Ludacris Foundation was recognized by Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, Speaker and the full House of Representatives for efforts to change lives in schools and communities.
