“I look forward to partnering with The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas, as well as The Sands Corporation to raise money for kids,” said Chris Paul. “Everything I do with my foundation, the Chris Paul Foundation, is to benefit children.”
The Chris Paul Foundation strives to impact the communities it serves by using its resources and passion for philanthropy to enhance and promote education, health, sports and social responsibility for youth and families. In 2005, Chris established the Chris Paul Foundation, in honor of his late grandfather, to provide scholarships for kids to attend Wake Forest University.
