Autographs and Autographed Items

The Wade's World Foundation does not provide autographed or other items for outside auction or fundraising events. We have appreciated the opportunity to contribute to fundraising efforts nationally, and hope that organizations around the world will continue to locally grow and provide support to community-based organizations for youth in at-risk situations.

Personal Requests

We appreciate what great fans Dwyane has! However, we have a small staff and a big mandate to help underserved kids in the communities we focus on. Please do not contact the Foundation to request a meeting with Dwyane or personal autographs, or assign class projects to students to contact the Foundation for autograph requests. Fan mail can be addressed to the Miami HEAT. We appreciate your understanding and support as we strive to do our best for the children we serve.

Please also note that the Foundation does not forward email or mail to Dwyane or to the HEAT, nor can we arrange for personal visits, basketball tickets, or business ventures unrelated to the Wade's World Foundation.

Other Requests

Before contacting the Foundation, please take a moment to note that grant awards are only available to non-profit child-focused organizations providing direct services to children in the Chicago, South Florida & Milwaukee areas; although we know and appreciate that there are many wonderful causes and organizations out there around the world, we will not consider other proposals. We appreciate your support and understanding as we dedicate all of our resources and time to the children and youth we serve.


While we're great fans, the Foundation is not affiliated with the Miami HEAT or the NBA. For game tickets and/or HEAT merchandise, please check out, or For game tickets only, please check out our LIVE TO DREAM Challenge (Miami only).
