The Cory Redding Foundation was established to support quality educational, recreational and community assistance programs that promote the development of at-risk populations.

A few of the Cory Redding Foundation programs supports include Cory’s 3D Football Camp in Houston, the Conduct Pledge Program in Indianapolis, Meals on Wheels in Austin and more.

Giving back has been important to Cory since his playing days at The University of Texas under Mack Brown. Throughout his NFL career, Cory has continued his effort to truly make a difference.


Most people know me as a football player. I’ve played 13 seasons in the NFL and played collegiate football at the University of Texas in Austin from (1999-2002) as stated above. However, I am much more than a football player.

The 1999 Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year finished his career ranked second on UT’s career TFL’s list (57) and 10th on the Longhorns all-time sacks chart (22). Prior to coming to Texas, Redding was named the 1998 USA Today National Prep Defensive Player of the Year and a Parade All-American as a senior at Galena Park’s North Shore High School.

Being a part of The Cory Redding Football Camp is amazing. It means so much to be to able to volunteer. I have only sold t-shirts but even doing that for the last two years has been great, I get to see all the kids have fun and its open to little girls and boys. I get to meet most of the parents and they are just excited as we are to be there and apart of something so amazing. For someone like Cory Redding (being in the NFL) to take time out and give back with a day of fun, learning and skill training is wonderful and it doesn't cost a lot.

Being involved with the registration process of Cory's camp each year reminds me just how precious life is. In the blink of an eye, too many of our youth are being lost to wrong choices or even death, but Cory and the men who participate in the camp, not only share their knowledge of football, but the time spent speaking life into the campers is invaluable. The larger blessing is that throughout the year, I see the campers as well as their parents and hear great feedback. The impact of the camp is priceless. Charlotte Jackson, Camp Registration Manager

It's always great to come back to Houston and Cory's camp was icing on the cake. Great energy and lots of fun!

This is the third year we have done the Cory Redding Football Camp and we love it. This camp is perfect for this community. There are a lot of kids who don’t have fathers here, there are a lot of kids who are looking for something to do in the summer to get the skills they need for football so for this camp to come out to this community every year and offer that to the youth is just great. It’s phenomenal. Tracy Elam, Camper Mother

It’s not just about football, it’s about life and just trying to develop young men into grown men.
