JJ Watt Foundation

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide after-school opportunities for middle-school aged children in the community to become involved in athletics, so that they may learn the character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic, and perseverance, while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.

Our Progress

The JJ Watt Foundation has provided funding in excess of $6,900,000 to 6th – 8th grade after school athletic programs and organizations. We could not have achieved this milestone without the continued support of our amazing fan base and sponsors in the community, and we commit to work hard to fund the next $6,900,000! If you know of any after school program for middle school aged kids in need of funding for critical components or uniforms, please direct them to the Request Funding tab on this website.

Harvey Relief

Thank you for the tremendous support of our Houston Flood Relief Fundraiser. With the funding distributed to the four organizations with which we have partnered, we know that it will impact those that need it the most. Our team is wrapping up the thank you letters and returning their focus to our After School Athletic mission. All donations received on our website and in the mail will now support the After School Athletic programs. Thank you for your support!

Thank you! – The JJ Watt Foundation
