The E.P.I.C. Foundation is...
An established group of professionals who desire to make an impact on our community's children through experience, motivation, academics, athletics, music, and the arts: positively impacting students in today's education system.

Our Mission: To provide support for students in today's ever-changing Education System

For Our Children

Our relationship with the children is about the impact we make. We want to share the history of the community and the impact we've already made, and to expand that to reach new people. Here, you can get involved in what we do, and directly impact the lives of children looking to improve their academic achievements. We also work through experience, motivation, athletics, music, and the arts, alongside academics, to create a successful culture and create positive change in our education system.

Our Founder

South Florida native and University of Miami alumnus, AJ Donaldson has nearly two decades of teaching and academic mentoring experience. In his career, he has successfully tutored more than 500 students in a variety of subjects, crafting a unique and comprehensive methodology that guarantees student cooperation and success.

Donaldson, as known by several of his mentees, earned a Dual Audio-Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Miami in 2003. He was also a recognized student-athlete, playing the fullback position for the Hurricanes' Division-I football team from 1998 to 2000. Prior to graduating from the University of Miami, AJ volunteered his mentoring services to various private school parents which eventually yielded the establishment of Donaldson Scholar Mentors, LLC in 2005 and a contract with the Seminole Tribe of Florida. The organization was eventually rebranded as United Mentors, LLC in 2012.

Raised in Miami by a single mother, Donaldson often leaned on mentors throughout his youth to help guide him and fill the void left by an absent father. The positive encouragement and guidance from his own mentors sparked a desire to provide the same for students in his community. Donaldson's passion to help those in need culminated into the establishment of the EPIC Foundation.
