Off the court, Tatum is committed to giving back to his community through the Jayson Tatum Foundation, which provides educational, athletic and mentoring programs to empower children and youth in St. Louis. The foundation recently received a $1 million USD donation from financial services company SoFi to help low-income, single-parent households achieve homeownership.

Joining the ranks of Coach‘s global ambassadors, which include Lil Nas X, Jennifer Lopez, Youngji Lee, Koki and Wu Jinyan, Tatum brings his unique style and inspiring commitment to the brand’s mission of celebrating authentic self-expression and courage.
