Russell Wilson | Why Not You Foundation FounderA Message from Russell

Thank you for your interest in learning more about my foundation and our mission.

Our foundation is, first and foremost, about kids.

It’s about inspiring kids to believe in themselves. Encouraging them to believe in their future. And convincing them that anything is possible, no matter where they come from and what challenges are in their path.

My father, Harrison Wilson III, instilled the “why not you” philosophy in me at an early age with an emphasis on service, community and believing in one’s individual potential to achieve great things.

He always told me to believe in myself. To believe that I could make the team, I could achieve my goals, I could do it no matter the challenges or obstacles in my way.

Through the foundation, I plan to honor my father’s message, give back to the communities that have done so much for me, and inspire today’s youth, who will become tomorrow’s leaders, to think BIG. To think Why not you? Why not me? Why not us?

I invite you to join us on our mission. Together, I truly believe we can make a difference.
