Good things come to those who work

Beyond the game, Wilt Chamberlain’s legacy lives on in the charitable spirit he stood for, the scholarships he made possible, and in you. The Wilt Chamberlain Memorial Fund invites you to carry on his legacy—and start your own.

Larger
than life

20,000 points. 4 MVP Awards. 2 World championships. But more impressive than the numbers was the man behind them. Wilt Chamberlain didn’t just change the game, he changed the lives of those around him. Through his Memorial Fund, his legacy lives on today.

College is calling

Each year, the Wilt Chamberlain Memorial Fund awards eight high school seniors with the financial support to continue their education. To realize their dreams. Think you have what it takes to win one of our scholarships?
