Born in Los Angeles, CA on April 6th, Spencer was brought up and raised to be dedicated with anything he does. His parents, Malcolm and Stephanie Dinwiddie, raised him to be dedicated to anything that he does and made sure Spencer had access to all of the tools and resources he needed to succeed, no matter what his passion would be.
Fast forward to now, Spencer honored his journey by starting The Dinwiddie Family Foundation. Spencer launched the DFF in honor of those who helped him advance in life. Spencer knows that the guidance that he had growing up was crucial to his achievements in basketball and business, and that is why he is eager to give back and help others in the same way.
The Dinwiddie Family Foundation’s mission is to empower at-risk and disadvantaged youth through fitness, literacy, and educational programming.
Dinwiddie Family Foundation is proud to cultivate the next generation of diverse leaders through the Dinwiddie Scholars program, in partnership with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).
Dinwiddie Scholars allows young people to focus on academics. With up to $20,000 in scholarships, renewable for up to four (4) years, Dinwiddie Scholars "levels the playing field" by supporting tuition and upfront, out-of-pocket expenses.

Spencer Dinwiddie mixed his hobby with his philanthropy. Oh, and in classic Dinwiddie style, thumbed his nose at the shoe companies that had rejected him.
