Each year, the NFL seeks to improve the surrounding communities of the Super Bowl host city through the Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program, by giving an annual $1 million contribution from the NFL Foundation. This year, a $2 million grant – supported by funding from the NFL Foundation, the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee, the LA84 Foundation and the Play Equity Fund – will support the Champions Live Here initiative, which has shined a spotlight on the achievements of 56 local Champion organizations who often go unrecognized and provided grant awards to help these organizations continue the tremendous work they are doing in the community. The 56 Champion organizations focus their work in the areas including youth development, jobs & economic opportunity and social justice.
Over the past year, the NFL Foundation’s Super Bowl Legacy Grant contribution has used the spotlight of the Super Bowl to showcase the achievements of these Champion organizations that often go unrecognized. The Legacy Program has awarded each of the selected Champion organizations with a $10,000 grant, a professionally-produced vignette-style video spotlighting their organization, and ongoing public recognition of their work in the leadup to Super Bowl LVI. Additionally, six of these 56 organizations were selected in December to each receive a total grant award of $50,000, to make an even bigger impact in their community.
