The Suh Family Foundation
Built on a dedication to helping individuals on their journeys towards empowerment, the Suh Family Foundation works with communities to equip people with the resources they need to sustain long-term success.
Founded by Ndamukong and Katya Suh, the Suh Family Foundation works hand-in-hand with communities to supply resources across three pillars that were pivotal to the Suh’s own success: education, health and wellness, and empowerment.
$20,000 for financial futures
The Suh Family held a financial literacy focused giveaway, setting up 20 fans with $1000 each and a free yearlong membership to a leading investment platform. Investing their winnings has set each of the participants up for long term financial success.
Backpack Giveaway Program
The Suh Family Foundation used funds from the BAE’s Fried Chicken x Suh Family Foundation Super Bowl LV Sunday partnership to give away 150 backpacks to PPS middle school and high school students. The kits included Jordan backpacks, provided by Haddad Brands; toothbrushes, provided by Quip; and general school supplies.
Bringing Financial Literacy to Portland Students
The Suh Family Foundation, The Big Yard Foundation, Brennan Scarlett, and Stash101 gave Portland kids a day-long crash course in the money skills they need to set themselves up for success, and work towards building long-term wealth.
Stash101 is offered solely for educational and informational purposes and is provided free of charge. While Stash101 is affiliated with Stash Investments LLC (“Stash RIA”), an SEC registered investment adviser that charges fees, Stash101 is not an investment adviser and is separate and apart from Stash RIA.
