The Deion Branch foundation actively supports organizations committed to assisting meningitis victims, particularly infected children. Previous benefactors were The Home of the Innocents. In addition, the Deion Branch Foundation is dedicated to promoting the emotional well-being of disenfranchised children by supporting Tree house for Kids and Zion Preparatory Academy during annual toy and Thanksgiving drives during the holiday season. The Home of the Innocents is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of abandoned, abused, neglected and medically fragile children. Since meningitis causes inflammation in the brain and spinal cord, many survivors are permanently and severely disabled and The Home of the Innocents provides thousands of children with the round-the-clock care they require to make it through each year.
The Deion Branch Charitable Foundation was initially established to help ease the struggles of those children struggling with health related issues, including those with meningitis. The foundation is close to Deion’s heart as his son, Deiondre was diagnosed with Viral Meningitis at an early age.
The Deion Branch Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Tax ID: 20-1067246
