The Foundation

Founded by Scott Tarter and Dr. John Abrams, the Dropping Dimes Foundation, Inc. is an Indiana not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, with concern about the well-being of former players of the American Basketball Association (the “ABA”) and their families, who are disadvantaged and have encountered significant financial hardship or sickness.

After the NBA-ABA Merger, the ABA itself ceased to exist as a going concern. Former ABA players who were not part of the Merger, or who did not play long enough in the NBA to receive vested pension benefits, were generally left in disadvantaged financial circumstances.

Facilitating the Dropping Dimes Foundation is a Board of Operations and an Advisory Board.
