NFL INSPIRE CHANGE
There is tremendous room for improvement in our communities. Whether it is a need for local resources or help fostering positive dialogue and relationships, our communities need immediate action to open access to opportunities to all. The NFL is using its unmatched platform to "Inspire Change."
"Mike is somebody he can rely on, so if he is having anything that he doesn't want to talk to me about, he can talk to Mike and confide in Mike" - Tiffaney, Houston Little Brother's Mom
Since the launch of Inspire Change, the league has provided grants to 20 non-profit organizations in support of programs and initiatives that reduce barriers to opportunity, with a focus on three priority areas: education and economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform. The NFL has contributed more than $44 million in grants to organizations across the country.
“Each of these organizations has worked to reduce barriers to opportunity and has provided resources that meet the needs of the communities they serve. We are proud to assist with their respective efforts to a more equal and just tomorrow.”- Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner
