After the passing of Jay’s grandfather from complications of diabetes, Jay made it a goal to honor his grandfather in anyway.  Once in the NFL, Jay made numerous appearances for the ADA in Buffalo and Houston.  Every appearance was a learning experience for Jay.  And after gaining enough knowledge to create his own purpose, he founded the Foreman Foundation in 2013.  The Foreman Foundation is a 501c3 that aims to raise awareness and funds for diabetics.

The Foreman Foundation will host different charity events from bowling, golf tournaments and gala’s to raise money to help the fight against diabetes.  These funds help provide grants to organizations locally that can service and reach more people than the Foreman Foundation can by itself.  In special cases the Foreman Foundation provides grants to individuals as well. The annual Foreman Foundation 44 Turkey drive provides 44 families with a Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving.  Every year the goal is to provide more families with a Thanksgiving Dinner.

Now Available: “Iron Will, authored by Foreman Foundation founder, Jay Foreman”
