Ed Reed Foundation

Jowers Vargas is privileged and honored to have a charitable partnership with the Ed Reed Foundation.

In the words of NFL Hall-of-Famer Ed Reed, “If we surround ourselves with the right people, in the right environment, our opportunity for success increases greatly.”

Through a combination of grassroots efforts on both the athletic and academic fronts, the Ed Reed Foundation transforms the lives of at-risk children in some of America’s most vulnerable communities. The Foundation is dedicated to impacting at-risk youth through health initiatives, mentorship and exposure to new environments.

Youth development is a cause that Ed feels passionately about and he has dedicated his post NFL career to this cause. He realized at a young age that environment is a key factor in development, through his own experiences.

Our co-founder Evan Jowers grew up, played football and ran track with a number of Ed’s mentors and family members and has remained friends with many of those individuals over the past 30 years. The Reed family was kind enough to invite Evan to Ed’s Hall of Fame induction in Canton, Ohio in 2019. At that event, Ed, Evan and the directors of the Ed Reed Foundation started making plans to create a partnership between Jowers / Vargas and the Foundation.

We hope that we can play our small role in helping push the Foundation’s success going forward, by introducing the wonderful efforts and ability of the Ed Reed Foundation to our community of clients and friends in Big Law.
