The Why Not You Foundation was established to empower change in the world, one individual at a time, and one child at a time.
Why Not You? Why Not Us?
The Why Not You Foundation was launched in 2014 by Russell Wilson and is dedicated to creating real and lasting change in the world by motivating, empowering and preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s leaders.
As a child, Russell’s father challenged him to approach life with a “why not you” attitude. Through the Why Not You Foundation, Russell intends to share that attitude by encouraging and challenging today’s youth to embrace opportunities, overcome obstacles and make a positive impact throughout their lives.
In addition to financially supporting organizations aligned with the foundation’s mission, Russell works to extend the foundation’s impact by making visits to Seattle Children’s, advocating for pediatric cancer through Strong against Cancer, working with the National Domestic Violence Hotline to Pass the Peace, as well as many others.
Thank you for your interest in the foundation and we hope you will join us on our mission to empower change in the world, one individual at a time, one child at a time.
We have the chance to change the world. Let’s do it together.
