Justin J. Watt Foundation

The foundation's mission is to provide after-school opportunities for middle-school aged children in the community to become involved in athletics, so that they may learn the character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic, and perseverance, while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.

Huricane Harvey Relief - YouCaring

When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, Watt announced the fundraising page with a video on Twitter after Houston's preseason game against the Saints in Aug. 26, with a goal of collecting $200,000. As donations kept pouring in, he raised the goal again and again. The number skyrocketed thanks to almost 200,000 donors, a group that included Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, Drake, Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk and Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul. Watt's relief fund disclosed that it raised a total of $41.6 million and had 209,431 total donors to the foundation.

Support for Santa Fe Shooting Victims

In 2018 Watt offered to pay for the funerals of the 10 people who were killed in a shooting at Santa Fe High School.
