MISSION & VISION
NFL Alumni also has a traditional mission of “Caring for Kids” across the country. Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 35 regional chapters. It is a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years. Alumni support typically raises more than $1.5 million dollars for worthwhile causes. To accomplish our mission & vision, we have established the NFL Alumni Foundation which is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
The NFL Alumni serves as a passionate advocate for greater quality of life benefits for all former NFL players. The Association eagerly pursues greater benefits and the implementation of programmatic services devoted to enhancing the health, productive acuity of retired NFL players and their families.
The organization maintains a keen awareness of its distinctive origins as an advocate for the rights of former players. As a result, the NFL Alumni encourages and promotes increased benefits for retired players.
The NFL Alumni continues to support those organizations and projects which offer special promise of advancing the quality of life in communities where Alumni chapters are located. The intent is to expand each chapter’s outreach into the community through year-round participation by Alumni members in fund-raising and personal-service programs of other charitable organizations.
