The Frank Ski Kids Foundation embraces youth and their value by showing examples and providing hands-on opportunities to promote optimal growth, self-expression, ingenuity, achievement and learning vital to their ambitions. Through the efforts of the foundation and the help of charitable contributors, observable differences in communities have been made. Our efforts to date have helped many children, but the needs of our children remain immense. We must continue with unfaltering determination.
Frank Ski – Chairman

Always one to promote giving back to his community, Ski received numerous awards and accolades including an 11Alive Community Service Award, The Ludacris Foundation Community Service Award, The National Urban League Distinguished Community Service Award and Black Enterprise Magazine’s National Community Champions Award.
He currently serves on several boards, including Leadership Atlanta, Hands On Atlanta and Rainbow PUSH Coalition. He also serves on the advisory committee for the Black College Hall of Fame and is a member of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Latin American Association and the Atlanta Business League. While philanthropy is his life’s passion, Ski takes time to enjoy some healthy indulgences as well. His personal interests include international travel, gourmet food and wine collecting.
