Established in 2008, NFL Wide Receiver Nate Washington launched the 85th Foundation as a non- profit organization with a focus on inspiring youth through education, economic empowerment, leadership, and physical fitness. Over the years, our passion has been to continually develop and engage in programs that positively change the lives of children and young adults, and in doing so, families as well.
While most of our work is done predominantly in Ohio and Georgia, through our partnerships with individuals and organizations we are able to contribute to a variety of programs and events across North America.
The 85th Foundation is a 501(3)c non-profit entity. 100% of all proceeds from donations are used for the sole purpose of advancing the objective of the foundation.
