Furthermore, Heidi has actively contributed her time to volunteering at Ransom Everglades, St. Thomas Episcopal School, and Women of Tomorrow.

Through her involvement in the field of education and various volunteer initiatives, Heidi was inspired to establish a platform through which she and Shane could contribute to the educational advancement of at-risk students.

Battier Take Charge Foundation

Consequently, in 2010, Shane and his wife Heidi founded the Battier Take Charge Foundation to offer educational resources and programs to support the growth and development of young people in disadvantaged communities.

The foundation has significantly impacted Miami, Detroit, Houston, and Philadelphia, advancing the mission of “Do Well, Do Good” to benefit the local communities.

Since its establishment, the Battier Take Charge Foundation has provided over 2.3 million dollars in scholarship funds to more than 100 scholars.
