what we do

Better futures for children in our community

No More Graves Foundation was founded by Ira Mathis after one of his close friends was murdered by another friend. That pain and hurt birthed a plan that we put into action. Being raised in the inner city there is so much we have seen and overcame. No More Graves Foundation is a “We Movement”. It’s an opportunity to give back to our communities by any
means. We believe that Together We Are Stronger. “Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, Declares The Lord, Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” So join us in being change agents that provides hope and guidance to the ones that
have no plan.


Who We Are


Build the healthy environments

Working together, we invest in the lives of children and youth, build the healthy environments they need to thrive, and empower them to create lasting change in their own lives and communities.


The students supported by our programs face major barriers to accessing education; many are orphaned, living in extreme poverty or dealing with other difficult family circumstances.


Empower young

Be the change
