James Anderson is a ten-year veteran of the National Football League (NFL). While breaking records on the field, James was steadfast in his dedication to making an impact in the communities in which he both worked and lived. He partnered with a philanthropic advisory firm, Driving Force Group, to ensure the work he did through The James Anderson Foundation was effective, efficient, replicable, and sustainable and with strong partners. James also partnered with Donors Choose to fund all the requests made by teachers in Chesapeake, VA. James has committed himself to the craft of philanthropy just as he did to football. He has attended conferences for philanthropists and studied best practices. This hard work landed him a board seat on Driving Force Group, where he has been instrumental in overseeing the firms work with all clients and donors. James received both his Bachelors of Arts and his Masters of Science from Virginia Tech.
