About Luol Deng Foundation
Gifted to Give
The Luol Deng Foundation is a non-profit organisation that uses basketball as tool to give hope to those in Africa, USA and the UK. Our work in the three different countries follows the life journey of founder Luol Deng, with each region having helped him in a different but significant way to his path as becoming an NBA superstar.
Our work in the UK focuses on providing opportunities for participation in basketball for all sections of the community through camps, clinics, events and programmes whilst also helping with coaching and club development. We focus on achieving this concentrating on three key areas:
- Increased participation in grass root development
- Providing provision and advice for elite pathway
- Increased coaching knowledge and development

We have a great relationship with the NBA Cares organisation where our work is focused around festive times such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.
