Brett and Deanna Favre founded the Favre 4 Hope Foundation with a mission to support nonprofits providing support and services to disadvantaged and disabled children in Mississippi and Wisconsin. After Deanna completed her treatment for breast cancer in 2005, the mission was expanded to include agencies offering support to breast cancer patients.
Since 1995, the Favre 4 Hope Foundation has donated over $8 million to their charity partners. Those partners include Make A Wish, Special Olympics, Hope Haven, ARC, USM's Children's Center for Communications and Development and USM's Brett Favre Athletic Scholarship.
