The Dwight Stephenson Foundation was founded in 2007 by NFL Hall of Famer, and former Miami Dolphin, Dwight Stephenson and his wife Dinah Stephenson. In 2007, The Dwight Stephenson Foundation emerged as a 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to serving the South Florida community and beyond.
The Foundation generates funding for a variety of charitable organizations including United Cerebral Palsy, The Urban League of Broward County, The Boys and Girls Clubs and The American Diabetes Association, to name a few. After numerous years of lending his name and support to various charities, NFL Hall of Famer and former Miami Dolphin, Dwight Stephenson realized his longtime vision of creating a charitable organization in his own name.
A successful businessman and owner of D. Stephenson Construction, Inc. in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Mr. Stephenson has successfully achieved his vision of combining his two passions – business and sports – to generate funds to further increase his support of charities that are near and dear to his heart. The Foundation leverages support from these two passions to create exciting events throughout the year, including The Foundation’s signature event, The Dwight Stephenson Hall of Fame Golf Classic, which is held each year in April.
Together with The Dwight Stephenson Foundation Board of Directors and Special Event Committee members, the lives of children and families are being improved.
