Established in 1996 by Scott and Evelyn (Sis) Names, the Names Family Foundation provides grants for non-profits that promote sports, physical education, health and wellness.
Scott and Evelyn (Sis) Names had more than a fondness for sports. They had a passion. Athletics and physical education played a central role in their lives and in the lives of their children. If the Names’ family was ever not outside playing sports, you could be sure of one thing: they were inside watching sports.
their passion for sports extends not only to the Names’ family 4th and 5th generations, but to every resident across Pierce County. All of us get to enjoy the facilities and complexes whose existence can be traced back to the selflessness of Scott and Sis.
the Names Family Foundation extends the passion of Scott and Sis by providing grants for non-profits that promote health, wellness and sports. If you’re an advocate for physical education and believe in leading with your heart, contact us today about a grant for your organization.
the Names Family Foundation has awarded over $36M to projects in and around Puget Sound. While numbers tell part of the story, the Foundation’s true impact is more intangible. It’s the feeling that countless lives have been transformed by the generosity of two humble individuals: Scott and Sis Names.
Sports and competition bring people together in ways no other buildings can. People engage with one another and form lasting bonds. Scott and Sis saw that sports have the power to bring all of us closer together – which is why the Names Family Foundation continues this legacy today.
