MIAMI DOLPHINS AND USA FOOTBALL AWARD NFL FOUNDATION-FUNDED GRANTS TO LOCAL YOUTH AND SCHOOL-BASED FOOTBALL PROGRAMS

May 8, 2020

USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, and the Miami Dolphins recently awarded grants for new equipment, uniforms and other resources to youth and scholastic football programs throughout the Miami area.

In 2020, USA Football’s equipment grant program will award $1 million in resources to benefit young athletes based on need, merit and the organization’s commitment to coaching education and best practices. Since 2006, USA Football’s grant program has awarded more than $15 million in grants to youth and school-based football programs, which has directly benefitted more than 500,000 youth and high school players across 9,500 programs in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

Grants are valued at up to $1,000 apiece and provide resources from the following USA Football partners:

 

USA Football’s equipment grant program is made possible through the NFL Foundation. The NFL Foundation is the league’s nonprofit organization representing its 32 clubs. Its mission is to support the health, safety and wellness of athletes, youth football and the communities which support the game. USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL.

“We’re grateful to have the support of USA Football and the NFL Foundation to provide some of our South Florida high schools and youth programs with fundamental equipment and resources,” said Miami Dolphins Director Youth Programs and Camps RaShauna Hamilton. “These grants are one of many ways the Junior Dolphins program strives to ensure youth football players in our community are playing football in a fun and safe environment.”

“USA Football is proud to work with the Miami Dolphins, the NFL Foundation and our partners to support youth leagues and scholastic programs around the country and help them deliver exceptional football-playing experiences to their athletes and families,” said USA Football CEO & Executive Director Scott Hallenbeck. “‘Football For All’ more than describes our Football Development Model – it’s a commitment that guides our work. With the NFL Foundation’s support, our grant program is another avenue that brings this mission to life.”

“Each year, the NFL Foundation is pleased to work in partnership with USA Football and our 32 clubs to assist youth and school-based programs nationwide with much-needed resources and equipment,” said NFL Foundation Vice President of Philanthropy & Executive Director Alexia Gallagher. “Coordinated efforts like these help create an enhanced football-playing experience and ensure kids can enjoy the fun and fitness of the ultimate team sport.”
