To the Western New York community – especially Buffalo Bills fans, Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. was a giant. Mr. Wilson showed his commitment to our region by creating the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation through the sale of the Buffalo Bills after his passing.
As we celebrate what would have been Mr. Wilson’s 100th birthday on Wednesday, October 17, we know his legacy will live on in our region forever.
On November 24, 2015, The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo announced a philanthropic partnership with the life trustees of The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation that will offer perpetual support to the organizations and causes that were important to Mr. Wilson. Since, then our relationship has only deepened and expanded. We are truly honored to work with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation team and assist them in carrying on Mr. Wilson’s legacy.
