The Abbrederis S.O.W. Foundation
Jared and Rachel Abbrederis created The Abbrederis S.O.W. Foundation while Jared was finishing his fourth year in the NFL. Throughout their time in the NFL, they gave back to multiple causes within the State of Wisconsin and were exposed to many of the needs that Waushara and the surrounding counties have. These counties of central Wisconsin are among the poorest in the state, and there is not enough funding to go around.
The foundation has partnered with the Human Services Departments of Adams, Columbia, Green Lake, Juneau, Marquette, and Waushara Counties to identify these needs and to distribute the funds to help make a difference. Human Services works closely with people who come upon hard times, and that experience and knowledge helps us get the funds to the right places. All of the money given to Human Services from the S.O.W Foundation is distributed to a need in the community which we have discussed and decided upon. We are excited about the partnership, and we know that lives are truly being changed because of our efforts.
Jared and Rachel were both brought up in Christian homes and were taught the importance of giving. There are numerous verses in the Bible that talk about looking after those in need, such as James 1:27 : “…to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Through our experience, we have noticed that there are blessings in giving and we ask you to consider sharing in that with us!
The direction of our foundation is brought to you by the guidance of our leadership team that make up the Board of Directors. The Board consists of 8 local individuals which include; Jared Abbrederis (President), Rachel Abbrederis (Vice President), Scott Abbrederis (Secretary), Chris Bartz (Treasurer), Luke Abbrederis, Parker Detjens, Adam Spitler, and Kyle Thom.
