The Foundation

The Cyclones Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that was organized in September of 2010.

Through broadcasting and youth athletics, our mission is to give voice and purpose to the overlooked, suppressed and under-represented. 

The organization was created by Malik Shamsid-deen to fill a void for organized summer basketball activities within the Frankfort area. The initial name of the organization was Capital City Cyclones Sports Program, Inc.

While youth athletics were the prime focus when the journey started, the mission and vision has now expanded to include other educational components, including broadcasting and journalism. 

The two major projects of The Cyclones Foundation are the 

Cyclones Sports Academy and WTCF-DB (Cyclones Radio).
