Morgan Wallen spent the majority of his childhood playing baseball. Through that love of sports, he founded the Morgan Wallen Foundation in 2021, which, according to the website, is “based on the importance of sports and music opportunities for youth and the value of community service.” Wallen has given back many times since he founded his foundation.
The website explained, ‘Through baseball,Morgan learned about teamwork, commitment, hard work, and drive. These values have been critical to his success as a country artist. Music was a sense of joy – from singing with his sisters in church to playing the violin – music allowed Morgan to cultivate his artistic creativity. His parents saw the importance of these activities and found a way to create access for their kids. It wasn’t always easy, but they made it a priority.”
After his latest donation to Nashville area youth baseball, Morgan said, “I started the Morgan Wallen Foundation to support youth in two areas – sports and music. When I heard about Parkwood, right here in Nashville, I knew I wanted to help. Every child deserves a chance to play ball and be part of a team, and I truly appreciate this opportunity to be part of Parkwood’s next inning. I can’t wait to come back out here and see the park once it has been renovated.”
Over the course of just two years, the foundation has donated millions of dollars; it began with a donation in his hometown of Sneedville, Tennessee, and has spread across the country. MWF has donated funds to rehabilitate sports facilities, baseball fields, sports equipment, music programs, and instruments.
On Wallen’s 2022 “Dangerous Tour,” MWF supplied 500,000 meals across tour stops to help combat food insecurity during natural disasters in the US.
