About Taste of the NFL

About the Anquan Boldin Foundation
Established in 2004, the Anquan Boldin Foundation (Q81 Foundation) is dedicated to expanding the educational and life opportunities of underprivileged children. As evidenced by charitable activities in Florida, Arizona, Baltimore and California the foundation has a ten-year history of offering after-school programs, full-time college scholarships as well as dental care and food programs for disadvantaged youth. While Anquan Boldin is now widely recognized as one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, he has never taken his success for granted. Boldin was raised in the impoverished area of Pahokee, Fla., where he had basic necessities but not much more. Now a husband and father of two, he leads by example through his inspiring philanthropic work all over the world. Some examples of his efforts were recently chronicled in a cover article entitled “‘Tis Better to Give'” in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes monthly publication. As his legacy continues to grow, both the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers have recently recognized him as the Walter Payton Man of the Year team honoree. The award is given annually by the NFL to honor a player’s volunteer and charitable work, as well as his excellence on the field. In addition, Anquan, along with his wife Dionne Boldin, recently announced the establishment of an endowment they made available through a charitable gift of $1 million they personally made to the Anquan Boldin Foundation. This endowment will be used to provide an annual distribution of scholarships to high school graduates. For more information about the Anquan Boldin Foundation, visit www.Q81.org.
