The Names Family Foundation was established in 1996 by Scott and Sis Names who shared a passion for philanthropy, a deep interest in health and fitness, and a love for the Puget Sound region.
Scott and Evelyn (sis) Names have been lifelong residents of the Puget Sound area of Washington State. Scott grew up in the North End of Tacoma and Sis grew up in Fircrest. They both attended Stadium High School.

Scott and Sis had three children; Tom, Clint, and Paula. They worked very hard during their early years and were extremely frugal during the Great Depression. In 1957, Scott and Sis started Scott's Athletic Equipment store in Lakewood. It was a full service athletic store serving the Tacoma community for over 42 years. Eventually their children joined them working in the family business. Scott and Sis loved to see the young men and women do well in high school while playing sports. In 1996 they began the foundation. Today their legacy and gift continues with daughter Paula and their grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The Names Family Foundation promotes health and wellness in Pierce County through supporting physical education and athletics.
