After turning pro at the age of 16, tennis prodigy Andre Agassi rose to international fame, earning 60 men’s singles titles, including eight Grand Slam singles championships, over a 20-year career.
A former World No. 1 player, Agassi is the only male player ever to win all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal.
In 1994, at the age of 24, he created the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education and since then $185 million has been raised to benefit the mission of the Foundation.
After retiring in 2006, Andre Agassi increased his focus on his foundation and on promoting education reform. In June 2011, as part of an effort to expand his impact on education, Andre partnered with Turner Impact Capital on an innovative new real estate fund – the Turner-Agassi Charter School Facilities Fund – to promote the success and growth of best-in-class charter schools in urban communities across the United States.
As of 2022, the fund has opened 120 schools, serving over 100,000 students in some of the most economically challenged neighborhoods in America.
Most recently, Andre launched Square Panda, an award-winning educational technology learning system utilizing phonics with multi-sensory play. Square Panda’s mission is to give children the tools to become fluent, confident readers, and empower them to love reading.
