Inspire the next generation
Flag football gives kids the chance to experience the lifelong benefits of team sports. It increases confidence, builds character, encourages academic achievement, establishes a healthy lifestyle and teaches life lessons that extend far beyond the football field.
But not everyone has access to play.
The Gridiron Football Foundation provides youth flag football scholarships and equipment to kids, schools and communities in need through the generous support and partnership of Gridiron families, local businesses and national brands.
This year, we plan to award 3,300 grants to kids across the country.
Give Back Community Events
Virtual or in-person, these fundraising events help kids learn the value of paying it forward, giving other kids the opportunity to join them on the Gridiron. And did we mention they get some pretty amazing gear rewards for their effort?! All scholarship funds stay in the local community.
We partner with local businesses who share our commitment to the communities we live in and serve. Their generous support helps fund local scholarships for kids in need, schools without sports programs and communities that don’t have access to flag football.
We partner with national brands who want to make a real difference. Their sponsorship fuels individual grants for families in need, introduces our youngest athletes to the game, supports schools without intramural programs and brings flag football to new communities.
