Successful Houston business owner and founder Donnie P. today announced the creation of his new non-profit, The Still and Tubman Foundation, which will help budding entrepreneurs gain access to critical resources.
“I didn’t have any money when I started my first business. I struggled but was, thankfully, able to be successful,” said Donnie P., serial entrepreneur and business mentor. “I want to give others the same chance at success.”
The non-profit has three main objectives:
Provide school supplies and materials to school-aged children in need, giving them the opportunity to thrive in school and later in life.
Provide scholarships to high school seniors entering university to pursue an undergraduate degree in business, easing the burden of financial anxiety so they can focus on their coursework.
Provide financial assistance to new entrepreneurs who are strapped for cash, giving them a chance to become successful business owners who will pay it forward in the future.
“When I started my first business, which dealt with substance abuse in children, I saw so many of them without basic school supplies. There was a real need in the community,” said Donnie P. “My dad was an educator in the Louisiana school system. I learned so much from him. One of the biggest lessons he taught me was that being of service to others is your life’s greatest purpose.”
Donnie P has over twenty years of experience opening and operating successful businesses. He is also the author of How to Catch a Mouse With No Cheese: Real World Lessons and Experiences from an Entrepreneur, which explains five life-changing principles that help any cash-strapped entrepreneur start their own business. Currently, he’s the owner and founder of a business investment company, OSD Group, LLC, as well as a cannabis dispensary, Green Leaf. Guided by strong ethics, he develops business platforms that uplift others, regardless of their economic status.
