With philanthropy at the center of 2023 Pro Bowl Games, NFL supports Boys & Girls Clubs of America in its mission to create great futures for young people

NFL Foundation to donate more than $300,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs Across the Country

The 2023 Pro Bowl Games presented by Verizon brought together the League’s best talent not only to showcase their skills on the field, but also to highlight their philanthropic efforts by giving players the opportunity to give back and engage with kids and teens. Throughout the week, multiple events took place across the region to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, engaging its members in fun, youth-centered, interactive football activities.

In addition to the on-site activations, the NFL strengthened its partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to weave in a key philanthropic funding component into the week’s activities. When Pro Bowl players won skills challenges throughout the week, they earned points for their respective conference. After a week of Pro Bowl Games, the winning conference, the National Football Conference (NFC), secured player donations to their chosen local Boys & Girls Club.

Overall, the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games efforts will provide more than $300,000 in funding through the NFL Foundation to support kids and teens in Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide which includes a grant to Donald W. Reynold Boys & Girls Club to refurbish indoor and outdoor spaces through the Legacy Project. As a result of the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games support of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the NFL Foundation’s donation will support 18 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.

“Today's young people are the future leaders, innovators and change-makers for our nation,” said Jim Clark, President & CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We are honored to have widespread support from the NFL Foundation to enhance resources at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.”
