The Chester Pitts Charitable Foundation’s Mission is to support the development of today’s youth through artistic and cultural programs that stimulate minds, broaden knowledge, and embrace the spirit of youth. I had the opportunity to ask Chester Pitts the following questions about his charity- CPCF:
1. Why did you choose this particular charity?
“The stars had to align,….I had to be passionate about however I chose to give back. My mom instilled the value of music in me and my siblings at a very young age, I believe it was a big difference in my upbringing and being successful. Most athletes’ foundations tend to focus on health and wellness, we wanted to set ourselves a part and be distinct. There had to be a need/problem or a broken system. So understanding what helped me and understanding the need, choosing to give back to the arts was a no brainer. There are always budget cuts for Arts programs-visual performing, music, dance, culinary and many more. What I have learned is that there is real value for kids and brain development for kids involved in the arts somehow; stats and numbers don’t lie. Kids that have the Arts are smarter, better students, and more productive.”
2. How many students has your charity assisted?
“Over 600 students with 150 to 200 students being helped this year.”
3. What do you hope to see the charity doing in the future?
“CPCF’s top goal is to find a way to get the Arts written back into the school district budget because every child should have access, and their best shot at being the most productive citizen possible.”
