FWIW, Deadspin set up an AMA with a sports PR guy and he basically said that the majority of charity foundations formed in an athlete's name are created as a way of funneling money to their friends and family.

Quote:
Q: What percent of the cash taken by athlete's charities actually go to the charity and what percent goes to their family?

A: Depends on the charity. It's case-by-case. Guys like Warrick Dunn run great charities. Charles Woodson too. But the majority are definitely fronts to pay their families.

Just some food for thought. Whole thing is worth reading.

Not surprising in the least. This offseason, Drew Brees showed how greedy "good guy" athletes can really be.

Here is the Crakburn announcement thread. Tough to read through the thread and not end up in tears.

Tillman is also big on fan event appearances and such. But most of all, regarding his Cornerstone Foundation: "since 2005, Charles Tillman's charitable efforts have impacted the lives of over one million Chicago-area children."
