The Darryl Worley Foundation is a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation. The Foundation was created in 2002 as a way for Darryl Worley and his friends to thank the Hardin County community for their love, support, and encouragement. Since its inception, the Darryl Worley Foundation has given over a million dollars in grants to causes and organizations throughout West Tennessee, Northwestern Alabama, and Northeastern Mississippi.

Currently, the Darryl Worley Foundation is working on two major projects in addition to the regular grant process. The first is the Leader In Me program in the Hardin County School System which is an evidence-based, comprehensive program that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive. The second project is an ongoing coordination with local agencies in the development of services for those struggling with chemical dependency.

The mission of The Darryl Worley Foundation is to create and aid organizations that assist with human need and welfare, community support, and education. Our desire is to constantly be giving back to the community and to encourage others to do the same. The Foundation raises funds to support these efforts through direct donations and events such as The Tennessee River Run.

Cancer Treatment Center

The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center started as a passion project for Darryl himself after losing two grandfathers to cancer. The Center, opened in 2010, allows for all cancer patients in Hardin and surrounding counties to receive chemotherapy and radiation therapy treatments close to home, rather than embarking on day-long trips out of town. The Center currently treats approximately 800 patients a month.

I can’t save them by myself
Oh, but God forbid that I just turn my head
And walk on by
Don’t let me be a stranger to those less fortunate than I
