National Football League Foundation Invites Applications for Digital Divide Grants

The National Football League Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of those touched by the game of football – from players at all levels to communities across the country. The NFL Foundation and its members, the thirty-two NFL clubs, support athletes’ health, safety, wellness, youth football, and the communities that support the game.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its Digital Divide Grant application. According to the foundation, the ability to access computers and the internet has become increasingly important to completely immerse oneself in the economic, political, and social aspects of America and the world. Since not everyone has access to this technology, the NFL Foundation will award up to $30,000 per NFL Club to earmark work with local nonprofits that help bridge the digital divide in their communities.

NFL Clubs and nonprofits or schools working in the digital divide space in a club market with NFL Club approval are eligible.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the National Football League Foundation website.  The deadline for applications is September 1, 2021.
