Founded by Adom Appiah, Ball4Good is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit supporting the community and other nonprofit organizations through sports. The nonprofit began as a school project during the fall of 2016. Mrs. Kelsea Turner of Spartanburg Day School inspired her students to dedicate 20% of history period to a service project. Mrs. Turner called the project 20Time. Ball4Good is a result of Adom’s 7th grade 20Time project.
With guidance from Mary Thomas (COO of the Spartanburg County Foundation), and support from family, The Spartanburg County Foundation, Spartanburg Day School, community leaders, teachers, coaches and friends, Ball4Good held its first ‘Celebrity Basketball Game’ in March of 2017. Proceeds from the game benefitted the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Upstate.
Ball4Good is now a movement building community through celebrity games, charity drives, fundraising, grant making, playing sports, raising awareness and volunteering.
