JJWF had a wonderful tour of YES Prep Public Schools – East End Campus in Houston. We are excited to provide funding for basketball, track and volleyball equipment as part of the school’s comprehensive educational program that prepares low-income students for success in a four-year college. Best of luck to you in the upcoming sports seasons!

After attending the JJ Watt Charity Classic this past April which raised over $300,000 to support the foundation’s mission of providing after-school opportunities for children in the community, Matagorda Elementary sixth grade teacher Moria Gesford was able to turn around and help her own school receive a grant from the foundation to fund new sports equipment. You can read more about the story here.

Great Texans win against the Chargers on last night’s Monday Night Football! Now we’re hoping that Welch Middle School (TX) tallies lots of wins with their new equipment for flag football and soccer funded by JJWF.
“My goal has been and always will be to make you proud both on the field and off. I am very fortunate to have a platform through which I’m able to give back and help provide kids with an opportunity to work hard towards their dreams the same way I did. That wouldn’t be possible without the unbelievable amount of support from fans and generous donors. So to you, I say thank you. Together we will help change lives.” – J.J. Watt
