Thank you for visiting the online home of the Usos Foundation, Inc.! Usos Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that focuses on changing the lives of at-risk and wayward young men and women. It gets them away from the streets, away from drugs, gangs, negativity, broken homes, etc. and gives scholarships to the world-renowned Wild Samoan Pro-Wrestling Training Center, where they learn structure, guidance, discipline, trust, camaraderie, the mind-body-spirit connection, exercise, valuable career-building and entrepreneurial skills, and much more. Usos Foundation depends entirely on donations and fundraising efforts. However, it can't be a success without the help of the community and word being spread everywhere. Donation are always very greatly appreciated. No amount is too small, and every little bit helps! Usos Foundation also helps young people live their dreams. It's not JUST for wayward and at-risk youths! Usos is all about opportunity, encouragement, giving young hopefuls with little chance or direction a place to fulfill their dreams.

We encourage you to take a look around the site and learn all about our success stories, Foundation programs, and fundraisers (i.e. Aloha Festival, Spirit Nights, Fundraising Banquet). Founded in 1999, by wrestling legend, WWE Hall of Famer Afa "The Wild Samoan" Anoa'i and Lynn Anoa'i, Usos Foundation boasts a tremendous success rate in turning around the lives of the at-risk and financially disadvantaged youths who have taken part in our program. Be sure to "Like" Usos Foundation on Facebook!

After you've looked through the information on our site, we would appreciate it if you would consider making a tax-deductible, charitable contribution to our 501 C (3) non-profit organization.

Success Stories

Jason Lesher

My name is Jason Lesher and I am a referee for WXW wrestling, living my dream of being a part of the pro-wrestling business. In the summer of 2000, Pops and Mom took me into their family through the Usos Foundation. Before I was a part of the program I would suffer through prolonged periods of depression which led to other problems and I never really had a direction in my life. Since joining the program my self-confidence has grown tremendously and everyone involved with the program have helped me find direction and focus in my life, instead of just going through the motions and not accomplishing anything with my life. I pretty much barely graduated high school, but since I have been a part of the program I have learned just how important a good solid education is and I am currently looking into options of furthering my education. I grew up in a single parent home. I know my mom did the best she possibly could trying to raise two sons. The program has shown me not just the importance of a male role model but also the importance of taking it upon myself to be that male role model when the need arises. Last but not least, Mom and Pops (through the program) have shown me the importance of giving. Not only is it good for the soul, but it is the best way to show your gradtitude to those who gave and helped you. If it were not for Mom, Pops, and the Usos program, I feel that I would currently be nothing more than a directionless mess and a burden to my family and my community. Your Son, Jason Lesher, WXW Referee
