In The Paint
In 2019, Jamaal Magloire Foundation in collaboration with Oasis Canada brought our first ‘In The Paint’ to your home court! We hosted 4 free at-home virtual youth basketball clinic sessions with Jamaal Magloire & friends. Each session included fundamental skills taught by the professionals themselves including; stretching by Shakiyl Cox, conditioning by Joseph Wani and ball handing with Alex Abou-Akl.
In memory of consummate music lover, father and mentor, Garth Magloire, the Garth Magloire Music Bursary is an award for Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) students from the Greater Toronto Area (Toronto, Durham, Halton, Peel, and York Regions) enrolled in a postsecondary music program who demonstrate financial need.
Jamaal Magloire Foundation is a registered charity that was launched in March 2017. Our focus is on improving the lives of youth who live in underserved areas by helping them improve their academic and social skills through the arts, sports and motivation. Jamaal Magloire Foundation’s mission is based on the belief that all youth deserve a chance to realize their dreams. Through donations, fundraising efforts and support from our wonderful volunteers, Jamaal Magloire Foundation changes the lives of children all over the GTA.
