The Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program Funds Organizations Supporting Underserved Communities in the Super Bowl Host City

 
LAS VEGAS — Feb. 9, 2024 — The Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program aims to leave a legacy of philanthropy and positive economic impact in the communities surrounding the Super Bowl host city. In support of Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 11, the NFL Foundation and the Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee are proud to contribute $3 million in grants to 117 local nonprofit organizations, all with a proven track record of supporting underserved communities in the Las Vegas area.

The $3 million in grants were made possible through joint contributions from the NFL Foundation and the Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee and its partners. The NFL Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those touched by the game of football – from players at all levels to communities across the country. Now in its 50th year, the NFL Foundation has emerged as one of the leading philanthropic entities in America, contributing to NFL team communities, national and international disaster relief efforts, and societal issues.

"Through the Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program, we strive to ensure the NFL leaves a legacy of philanthropy and community impact long after the final whistle of Super Bowl LVIII," said NFL Vice President of Philanthropy and Executive Director of the NFL Foundation Alexia Gallagher. "We are honored to have worked with the Las Vegas Super Bowl Host Committee to recognize and support these fantastic nonprofit organizations in their continued efforts to uplift those in need in Southern Nevada."

“It's an honor to be here alongside the NFL Foundation to award these incredible nonprofits with Legacy Grants," said Sam Joffray, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee. “As the host committee for Las Vegas' inaugural Super Bowl, we've remained steadfast in our efforts to leave a positive and lasting impact in Southern Nevada, and we are grateful for the opportunity to recognize these organizations for their contributions to this amazing community." 

Funding through this initiative will support projects and programs to permanently improve the lives of Southern Nevadans in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion; education; health and wellness; social justice; and youth and young adults. This year's Super Bowl Legacy Program Grants were distributed over two periods through 'Gameday' and 'Pregame' grants.
