Our Mission


The Professional Athletes Foundation (PAF) is a non-profit organization that works to support, inspire, and strengthen former NFL players and their families in unique and meaningful ways. We believe that by providing compassion and guidance, former players can and will remain leaders long after their playing careers are over. It is our mission to aid our NFLPA members in their post football success through a range of health, financial, and educational resources and wellness events which more than 4,500 players have explored since 1990. We strive to offer opportunities that empower players to take control of their well-being, bring together families from all walks of life to learn new perspectives, and provide financial assistance during some of life’s most difficult challenges. We encourage you to seek all that is possible through the PAF and to reach out to discover how action creates opportunity.
