Incapital Supports The Battier Take Charge Foundation

Incapital LLC, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income, equity and other financial products, announced plans today to support former Miami Heat player Shane Battier and his wife Heidi’s, Take Charge Foundation.

Founded in 2010, The Battier Take Charge Foundation is dedicated to providing resources for the development and education of underserved youth and teens.  Over the past four years, The Take Charge Foundation has offered more than $180,000 in scholarships to deserving young leaders from the greater Miami, Houston and Detroit areas.

In South Florida, The Battier Take Charge Foundation partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami to provide at-risk students an opportunity to continue their education at the college or university of their choice.  

“Incapital’s commitment to the Battier Take Charge Foundation will help ensure that tomorrow’s leaders will have every opportunity to reach their leadership potential,” said Shane Battier. “Incapital’s support will enable us to make an even deeper impact in helping students improve and impact their destiny.”

“Heidi and Shane are making a real difference in the lives of young people who have promise and dedication, but are at risk of falling through the gaps because of financial limitation,” said Chris Clews, Executive Director of Marketing at Incapital.  “All of us at Incapital will miss seeing a great player on the court, but we’re excited to support the important work that Heidi and Shane are doing here in South Florida.”
