Ryan Seacrest Foundation
A Note From Ryan...
Over the years, I’ve visited numerous pediatric hospitals that have the weighty task of caring for children facing serious illness or injury and I’ve always been amazed by the courage of the children and the families I meet. During these visits, I also learned that the patients were wanting more things to do to distract and entertain them during their hospital stays. This feedback really stuck with me and I told my family over dinner one evening that I wanted to create a foundation that would provide a positive distraction to hospitalized kids through the two things I know best: Radio and Television.
Along with my parents and my sister, we created the Ryan Seacrest Foundation and came up with the idea of building a multi-media studio with radio and television components in children’s hospitals across the country, named Seacrest Studios. We started with launching our first studio in my hometown of Atlanta, GA in 2010 and the concept really blossomed from there with us building ten more studios. Our eleven studios have now become a place where patients truly get to be a star and forget about their medical treatments and procedures. Our programming provides an outlet for kids to host their own shows, interview celebrities we help to bring by, play games and more.
My foundation’s goal is to continue to build and sustain Seacrest Studios across the nation to help lift the spirits of as many patients as possible. Thank you for taking the time to look around our website and learn more about what we do at RSF. The work of my foundation means so much to me and I’m truly grateful for your support.

It felt like the start of something new when actress, singer, dancer and social media influencer Sofia Wylie spent a fall afternoon in Seacrest Studios. Sofia (who was given the name DJ Hey Hey It’s Sharpay) met patients and families at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. and Boston Children’s Hospital!
Patients and families at Seacrest Studios traveled to outer space and back with help from NASA astronaut Akihiko Hoshide!
