The MII Foundation
Marcus Smith II started The MII Foundation in 2016. Named for its founder, MII’s mission is to improve the quality of life for single parents, at-risk youth, and the underprivileged by providing opportunities to enhance personal growth, build self-confidence, and gain valuable knowledge.
MII is a village for the voiceless, a shelter for those stuck in the storm.
To support its mission, the foundation hosts sporting events, dinners, galas, and family-centric experiences built on friendship, support, and compassion for others. Marcus has hosted his Annual 7v7 tournament in his hometown—Columbus, Georgia—for the last three years, as eight local high schools compete for a grand prize of $1,000 and football accessories. George Washington Carver won the most recent tournament in 2019.
