About The Foundation
Our mission is to influence at-risk youth, by encouraging their full potential through athletics and positive role models.
Impact on Youth Health
Since it’s inception, the Wes Welker Foundation has awarded more than $2,000,000 in grants to over 40 Oklahoma City schools and organizations. These grants paid for weight rooms, training equipment for multiple sports, uniforms and improvements to facilities and fields. The impact these grants have made is measurable, not just in the form of championships won, but also by the dramatic increases in the number of kids participating in sports at our grant-recipient schools and the number of student-athletes who have gone on to play sports at the college level. For some students, sports keep them engaged in their school communities thus increasing their education and their graduation success rate.
