The Novak Djokovic Foundation develops early childhood education projects in Serbia and gives grants to educational initiatives with a goal to help children.

Now, anyone who knows me know that I’m a Rafael Nadal fan to the core.  Rafa and Novak have had some “bitter” battles on the tennis court, and often Novak  has emerged the victor.  As you can imagine, that has not endeared him to me.    😉      But, anyone who invests in children wins huge points in my book.  Keep up the mission, Novak!

Djokovič and Friends Charity Gala Dinner with Il Volo

Announced by the Djokovič Foundation, but not confirmed by Il Volo.


We are very excited to inform you that, on September 20, 2016, The Novak Djokovic Foundation and friends will hold its fourth charity Gala dinner.

The event will take place at the magnificent Castello Sforzesco in Cortile Delle Armi, Milano, Italy, and will include a red carpet press line and cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner, with a program featuring a performance of the Italian pop trio Il Volo and an exciting live auction.

Co-founder Novak Djokovic and, director and co-founder of Novak Djokovic Foundation, Jelena Djokovic, along with many of their friends from the worlds of film, fashion, aristocracy, business, and international philanthropy, will be in attendance to raise funds and awareness for the children that NDF supports through their work.

The Gala will take place only a few days before the start of Fashion Week and will be followed by two days of the tennis exhibition matches (21-22/09) with stars like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Flavia Pennetta participating.

Our love for tennis, fashion, and giving back to the less fortunate has always been the powerful motivating force behind our success in the past, and we are confident that this time as well, our Milano Gala will prove to be the event not to miss.

Passion and commitment are the core values of our Foundation, and evident in all the work we do, from training more than 600 teachers, building or repurposing 18 schools and helping over 10,000 children and counting. We believe deeply in the vital importance of early education, and we’re determined to change the world: one preschool at a time.
