OJ Simpson, and has appeared in another 130 episodes of TV and a dozen films. As a businessman, Dale has raised millions of dollars for various entertainment related endeavors, and is currently partnered with the principals of a $2B investment fund. But it was his time as a Mouseketeer on 90’s The All New Mickey Mouse Club (alongside Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) that his passion for philanthropy took root.

Looking for ways to help the next generation reach their dreams, Dale formed the aptly named Always In The Club Foundation in appreciation of the training and mentorship he received as a young man on the Mouse Club. AITCF launched Project:NOW, a non-profit initiative that rapidly addresses the educational needs of at-risk youth with support from Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

Dale has fundraised for Unite4:Humanity and other events with Bill Clinton, Richard Branson, Robert DeNiro, James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Eva Longoria, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Sean Penn, Diddy, Jada Pinkett Smith, Charlize Theron, Anthony Mackie, and Halle Berry, among others. Other charitable activities have included fundraising for Kids In The Spotlight, volunteering for anti-bullying organization, Stand For The Silent, and serving as a judge for Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Competition, where millions of dollars in scholarships have been raised to send outstanding young ladies to college.

Dale recently co-founded the International Arts and Philanthropy Foundation with Amine El Mouttaki and Valarie Khoudari to provide fiscal sponsorship, fundraising support, and programmatic support to outstanding non-profits around the world. Dale has been honored bythe Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals for his work in the community, is a founding board advisor for the Jamaica Film Festival, and is a lifelong member of Jack and Jill of America.
