Dear Fellow Former Players & Friends,

The Professional Athletes Foundation (PAF) team is ready for the season of giving. How about you? November is always a good time to reflect on the year and your personal bests. The PAF’s personal bests for 2019 include more than 500 financial assistance grants to former players and support services to an additional 200 former players through direct counseling or the PAF Passport to Wellness Couples Retreats.

We also hosted five Living Heart Foundation health research screenings, awarded 30 college scholarships to the children of former NFL Players and granted an additional 112 scholarships to the graduating seniors in the communities former players serve. All together that is more than $3 million directly impacting you and your community!  

Now, I want you to think about how you can serve the former players community during the holiday season. We need your help. Any size donation is important and meaningful. As our player community continues to grow and we want to give you an opportunity to support your fellow former players through upcoming PAF fundraising opportunities. Our Giving Tuesday fundraiser is scheduled to begin December 3rd. An easy to use link will be provided to make giving simple. 

I always appreciate whatever you can do and remember action creates opportunity for others and blessings for you during the holiday season.
