The Officer Anthony Thompson Scholarship Foundation (OATSF), was founded in 2017 following the tragic transition of Anthony Thompson after being killed by a drunk, Wrong-Way Drunk Driver.
We are a non-profit organization under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. OATSF is comprised of professional leaders, entrepreneurs, and educators who bring a vast array of goals ready to empower today’s youth to become the next wave of tomorrow’s visionary leaders.
Through mentorship, organizational funding and scholarship opportunities, our endeavors are to support and provide scholarships to other charitable organizations and 12-grade students in Southern California high schools, educate families about the dangers of drinking and driving, assist families who have lost a child due to Wrong Way Drunk Drivers and, food drives throughout the holidays by feeding families in need.
Families Against Wrong Way Drivers (FAWWD) organization bring awareness to reduce the total number of deaths and/or injuries due to drivers entering the freeway via exit ramps. To provide immediate mobile notifications (Thompson's Alert), of oncoming dangers due to wrong-way drivers to nearby motorists, and to immobilize those vehicles entering the freeway via any exit ramps with the use of low profile traffic spikes. Unfortunately, Anthony life was taken in a senseless way but we can FIGHT Together and save the lives of others.
