Super Bowl 50 Host Committee Unveils Legacy Fund
The San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee will launch its legacy fund, 50 Fund, on Giving Tuesday with the introduction of two grant programs aimed at Bay Area nonprofits. The detail on the programs and how to apply for grants will be revealed during a one-hour live Twitter chat hosted by 50 Fund with Oakland Raiders All-Pro defensive end and philanthropist Justin Tuck, and San Francisco 49ers All-Pro wide receiver and philanthropist Anquan Boldin.
The signature philanthropic initiative of the Host Committee, the goal of 50 Fund is to help close the opportunity gap that exists for Bay Area children, youth and young adults living in low-income communities. Through its grantmaking programs, 50 Fund will support organizations and initiatives making a difference, tackling big issues and scaling their impact. Twenty-five percent of all monies raised by the Host Committee go toward 50 Fund. In addition, as part of its Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program, the NFL Foundation has committed $1 million to 50 Fund.
