Building Foundational Leadership

To Whom It May Concern:

In a time where many of our youth feel their lives have become complicated, we have made it our mission to help alleviate such feelings of overwhelming challenge, by taking them “Back to the Basics.”

Back 2 the Basics is a community organization designed to teach young men and women that by making good decisions today, they will be in a position to not only survive, but to thrive as they progress in life.  Our core goal is to build solid, foundational leaders by channeling community service programs that are effective and address social, cultural, educational, and recreational needs. Back 2 the Basics (B2TB) serves as a resource, advocate, expert and provider of quality coaching, mentoring and teaching.

B2TB community basketball team, “Team Dynasty,” teaches life lessons through basketball. In the last three years the team has consisted of young men and women from our community.  They have won fourteen 1st place Chicago Park District Championships and seven 2nd place championships. The team was designed to build character, discipline, respect, and sportsmanship. We stress simplicity and the adherence to fundamental principles for life through basketball.

B2TB is appealing to everyone that holds the belief that it is their duty help rebuild and restores our community.  It MUST start with us. NO ONE is coming in to save our community or our children—but we as a community can help build a place for these young men and women. Partner with us as we build this community traveling basketball/mentorship program. The funds will be used to purchase a 15 passenger van that will be used to safely transport kids to practice, games, events, and to return home. Today, we are asking you to help us offset our community team participation costs.

We are hopeful you will be able to support us at this time, and please know that any help would be greatly appreciated.  In any event, we extend our gratitude for your consideration, as well as past support you have shown this community.

If you choose to sponsor our activities such as: trips, tournament fees, uniforms, transportation expense, or food for fundraisers, please make all checks payable to “Back to the Basics”.  Upon request, we will send you a receipt for your generous donation.

Respectfully,

Brent D. Johnson Sr., President/Founder
