Report: Brett Favre’s Charitable Foundation Funneled Funds to USM Athletics

A few weeks ago, text messages from Brett Favre were released detailing that he received state welfare funding from former Mississippi governor Phil Bryant to build a new indoor volleyball practice facility at the University of Southern Mississippi, his alma mater and where his daughter plays.

A new report released by The Athletic on Wednesday night detailed that Favre’s charitable foundation, Favre 4 Hope, donated more than $130,000 to USM around the same time the former NFL quarterback was working with the state governor to fund a new volleyball center at the school.

The foundation states that it aims to support disadvantaged children and cancer patients.

Tax records obtained by The Athletic detailed that Favre 4 Hope donated money to USM from 2018 to ’20. In ’18, the foundation sent the USM Athletic Foundation $60,000, even though no other charities received $10,000 from the foundation that year.
