What is My Roots Foundation? We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to making sure everyone has knowledge of their who they are and where they come from. Why? Because there is so much inspiration to be gained from our past. Studies show when we are inspired we live better lives. Students do better in school, people give back to their communities and we all have a little more respect for each other when we know our family histories. Therefore our mission is to honor our ancestors and promote awareness of family history through Discovering, Preserving, and Sharing our histories.


Your donation will help as we use the past to create a better future.


My Roots Foundation offers a family history approach to developing and supporting personal well-being and self-esteem in children, adolescences, and adults. We provide tools and information delivered through talks, workshops, articles on our website, and social media. Our plan for this coming year is to increase our communication and resource delivery to educators, mentors and community influencers.


Join us in spreading the inspiration which comes from the discovering, preserving, and sharing of your past.


“Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”
