A New Decade Begins

For the past decade, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has presented the Steve Patterson Award for Excellence in Sports Philanthropy. Building on the Patterson Award, RWJF's new Sports Award will place a greater emphasis on collaboration across communities and sectors to build a Culture of Health, the Foundation's core vision.

Learn more about the new award

Sports have the power to drive change within communities by leveraging unique assets to support a Culture of Health.

A Culture of Health is one in which individuals, business, government and organizations work together to foster healthy communities and lifestyles—where being as healthy as possible is valued by every member of the community.

The RWJF Sports Award recognizes the ways in which sports influence healthy change in communities by helping children maintain a healthy weight, creating safe play environments, encouraging positive behaviors, eliminating bullying, abuse and violence, and expanding opportunities for children living in poverty.
