Elgin Davis, President of the Elgin Davis Foundation; Author and Motivational SpeakerDear Friends,

elcome!  I'm happy to have this forum to share my thoughts and memories with you.  Growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I was blessed with a house full of love.  My mother and father, along with my wonderful grandmother, instilled in me the strong values and work ethic that I have used successfully in my career and personal life. 

Through my work in the community, I have worked to help many people to live a better life.  Now it is my time to give back even more, with the creation of the Elgin Davis Foundation.  The mission of the foundation will be to raise funds and support programs to provide aid to people in crises, and to support projects to help disadvantaged youth.  (Learn more here.)
