NFL Alumni (NFLA) and the Players Philanthropy Fund (PPF) have joined forces to offer former NFL players a simple, efficient and cost-effective platform for collecting and distributing charitable assets. This platform provides a desirable alternative to the complexity, hassle and burden of operating an independent foundation.
“We at the Players Philanthropy Fund are so excited to be partnering with the NFL Alumni,” said founder and 2x Super Bowl Champion Matt Stover. “As a Former NFL Player, I am excited to see what this new partnership will do for my fellow alumni and their philanthropic endeavors. PPF is proud to represent over 35 current and former NFL Players across the league. Through this new collaboration with the NFL Alumni we can reach and assist more NFL Players in being the back-office administrators for their charity foundations, all while keeping them financially sound and in compliance with IRS best practices.”
PPF was created to inspire and empower philanthropy, while ensuring full compliance with legal requirements and nonprofit best practices to protect against any unnecessary risk to a player’s reputation.
“Our new partnership with Matt Stover and PPF will help alumni who currently have foundations and, at same time, assist other former players who want to start their own non-profits,” said NFL Alumni CEO Beasley Reece. “We are thrilled to partner with an organization that will help continue to grow our mission of Caring for Kids.”
