Joe Burrow announced the launch of his new nonprofit foundation.

The Joe Burrow Foundation will serve children and families who are dealing with food insecurity and mental health issues in Ohio and Louisiana. Burrow will work directly with his parents, Robin Burrow and Jimmy Burrow, to start the foundation and serve those communities.

He will serve as the president of the executive board. His father will be the vice president and his mother will be the secretary and treasurer. Burrow discussed the importance of giving back to the communities that impacted his life (Via Cincinnati Bengals):

“I believe that everyone has a responsibility to do good,” Burrow said. “This Foundation allows me and my family to give back. So many of you made generous contributions to support food insecurity in Athens County, Ohio following my 2019 Heisman Trophy speech. We will build on our efforts to tackle food insecurity by also finding ways to offer up support in Greater Cincinnati, other parts of Ohio, Baton Rouge and Louisiana. My mom, a lifetime educator, experiences firsthand the effect of mental health issues on children and their families. We want to make a difference here as well.”

Burrow is in his 3rd season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He is from Ohio and spent his final 2 seasons of college football at LSU in 2018 and 2019. Before he transferred to LSU in 2018, Burrow played 3 seasons at Ohio State. His connections to Ohio and Louisiana run deep.
