Founder at Warrick Dunn Charities

I’m proud of becoming who I am today in spite of losing my mom at 18. That altered my life but not my destiny. I’m also proud of obtaining my MBA degree and being able to transform the lives of 142 single-parent families through my Homes for the Holidays program is a blessing and a miracle. 


Warrick Dunn is the founder of Warrick Dunn Charities, Inc., a nonprofit organization that improves lives through innovative programming inspired by his life's journey. He has received local and national recognition for his philanthropic work off the field including the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2005, the 2010 Heisman Humanitarian Award, the 2011 Jefferson Humanitarian Award for Public Service, along with many others.

"My mother taught me to treat people the way that I would want to be treated," says Dunn.

Best known for his football career with Florida State University, the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the NFL Atlanta Falcons, Dunn has written a book titled Running For My Life and is also a Limited-Partner Owner of the Atlanta Falcons.

Dunn currently serves as the NFL Legends Coordinator for the National Football League.
