On Tuesday morning, former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow announced the launch of his nonprofit foundation titled "The Joe Burrow Foundation." Per Begnals.com:
quote:

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has announced the launch of a nonprofit foundation – along with his parents, Robin and Jimmy Burrow – to help meet the needs of families who are working to overcome food insecurity and childhood mental health issues. The Joe Burrow Foundation will provide resources and support to the underprivileged and underserved in Ohio and Louisiana.

"I believe that everyone has a responsibility to do good," said Burrow. "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 will serve as president of the Foundation's executive board. Robin Burrow will serve as secretary and treasurer. Jimmy Burrow will serve as vice president.

What is food insecurity?

Food insecurity is people who don't know where their next meal(s) are coming from.

"Food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household to live an active, healthy life. This can be a temporary situation for a household or can last a long time. Food insecurity is one way we can measure how many people cannot afford food.

According to the USDA, more than 34 million people, including 9 million children experience food insecurity in the United States."

I hope he'll let us use the foundation to embezzle money to recruits and their parents.

That's wonderful. Also, euphemisms like "food insecurity" are fricking retarded and weak sauce.

You're getting a lot of downvotes for some reason, but people do not starve to death in America.

I appreciate Me. Burrow’s service to my alma mater, but y’all do realize that this is basically just a tax write-off/shelter for him, right? People donate, he gets the credit for “doing good” by dispersing it as he sees fit, and it’s a tax deductible charity.

If he gets to keep more of what's rightfully his (his paycheck), I'm for it. Am I missing something?

Private Foundations are different from 501(c)3 charities. It's not at all as simple as you intimate.

Just like every company collecting for United Way or March of Dimes. Contribute or not. It's your perogative. Or find your own way to "do good". Or not.

Great causes, hopefully he keeps his liberal politics out of it. He’ll definitely make a positive impact to the communities.

Liberal politics? Conservatives can be pro-choice also.
