Many stars have foundations and charities, but very few are giving as much as 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. His foundation focuses on supporting children who are abandoned in foster programs. The foundation makes sure that these children who are about to become adults get mentoring, a good education, housing, and internships so that they are ready for their first job.  The foundation has a Guardian Scholars Program that uplifts foster youth who have experienced significant hardships and problems getting a college education.


Alex Smith’s foundation stays active and they have joined together with Helix High School to have a Mustache Fundraiser. A fun and new idea where participants grow a mustache and collect sponsors and donate directly to the Alex Smith Foundation. So start growing your mustache or find someone who is and support the cause!
