The Gardiner Foundation was established in 2006 by Dexter Gardiner, in memoriam of the loss of six of his family members in a horrific car accident on the Bronx River Parkway. Building upon his family’s legacy of helping others in need and involvement in the game of basketball, the Foundation embarked on a community outreach initiative that offers educational scholarships, spiritual guidance, and burial assistance to other families in the community who have suffered a sudden and tragic loss. Since its conception, The Foundation has awarded six scholarships to students entering college for the first time. These awards provide much needed assistance towards the purchase of books, clothing, and other items necessary for an enrolling college student.
