Kawann Short Charities is dedicated to exposing, empowering, and encouraging the lives of under served youth through Education, Arts and Athletics
Kawann Short Charities is a 501c3 Organization founded in 2018 for the perpetuity of the Kawann Short Brand and his commitment to underserved communities.
Kawann Short along with close family and friends established Kawann Short Charities to promote the future success of underprivileged youth. Short has a passion for sports but also has a desire to help those in need and make a positive impact on his community.
Short understands that children need exposure, encouragement, and opportunities to learn and grow. KSC strives to make these activities and opportunities available to children who might not otherwise have the chance to engage in. The charity has been a consistent contributor in North Carolina and Indiana providing more than $100,000 in grants, programs, and activities since its inception.
