About Us

At the core of the Asomugha Foundation is the belief that education is essential for success and longevity. Linked to health status and economic security, education is a springboard for innovation and growth across the globe. It is the Foundation’s mission to ensure that those with less means are given the opportunity to obtain a quality education, and thereby transform themselves, their families and communities.

The Foundation comprises two primary programs:

Asomugha College Tour for Scholars (ACTS)

ACTS is an annual college tour and mentoring program that provides high-achieving high school students of color with the opportunity to visit college campuses across the country.

Founded in 2007, by Oakland Raiders Pro Bowl Cornerback and UC Berkeley graduate Nnamdi Asomugha, ACTS has provided 36 students with opportunity to tour colleges and universities in Atlanta, Boston, New York, and Washington, DC.

Orphans and Widows in Need (OWIN)

OWIN provides aid to a growing population of women and children who are among the most vulnerable on the continent of Africa.

Founded by Dr. Lilian Asomugha, OWIN works to position widows and orphans for economic success and independence through education, spiritual guidance and vocational training.
