Nick's Kids Foundation
The Nick's Kids Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and resources for deserving organizations throughout the state of Alabama and Southeast. As the official charity of the Nick Saban Family, Nick and Terry invest their time in hosting luncheons, golf tournaments scrimmages, and other events to benefit the cause. They are also active in the Annual Fall Giveaway Luncheon, which serves to distribute grants to support children, family, teacher, and student causes.
In 1998, during their time at Michigan State University, Nick and Terry Saban established Nick's Kids Foundation in honor of the late Nick Saban, Sr. Since then, the Sabans have maintained and supported their charity throughout their careers at Louisiana State University, the Miami Dolphins, and currently at the University of Alabama.
To date, Nick's Kids Foundation has distributed over $6 million to hundreds of deserving organizations and causes. Additionally, Nick and Terry Saban have personally completed their donation of $1 million to the First Generation Scholarship at the University of Alabama. The Sabans are proud to be major sponsors of new the St. Francis Saban Student Center at their church, St. Francis Catholic.
Thanks to the generosity of the donors and the efforts of Nick and Terry Saban, Nick’s Kids Foundation has completed four major hands on projects including the Tuscaloosa River Walk Playground, renovating the STTEP Building of Brewer Porch Children’s Center, building 16 Habitat for Humanity Homes, and the Alberta School of Performing Arts Playground. Nick’s Kids is also a major capital campaign donor for the new YMCA of Tuscaloosa, to be built in downtown Tuscaloosa.
The mission statement of Nick's Kids is "To work together in the spirit of faith and giving in our community. To promote and support children, family, teacher and student causes. It's all about the kids!"
