The Thielen Foundation

Serving, educating, and inspiring those in need to achieve their full potential.


I’m sure many of you saw via social media but a couple of weeks ago my husband and I finally launched our foundation and we couldn’t be more excited! Since Adam has been in the NFL we have always talked about starting a foundation if able or to try and give back/ help the community any way we can! With Adam and I both growing up in Minnesota and now our children it’s so special and such a blessing we are able to help. We didn’t have a specific area we wanted to focus on we just both have a strong passion for children so we knew it had to involve them. When the behavioral unit came up on one of our visits to the U of M Health Masonic Childrens hospital and how they could use help in that area Adam and I both agreed that would be a great area to help! With mental/ emotional health being such a problem in the world today and with it sometimes being overlooked we thought we could help shine a spotlight on it and try and provide resources, hospital visits and more.

This has been a dream of Adam and I’s and we are ecstatic to get started. We are starting our weekly hospital visits to the children in the behavioral unit next week and are starting to plan our first big foundation event for Winter. Adam and I are both lucky to be in the position we are and we thank God for giving us this platform to help others and shine his light.

We couldn’t be more excited for our first partnership with this hospital and we also plan to continue to grow our foundation and impact as many lives as possible. Check out our website to learn more, stay up to date, and to give back…
