We have two big announcements this week.
We are very excited to announce that we have entered into a Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement with Players Philanthropy Fund. You can read the full press release here. This relationship allows us to raise funds and concentrate our efforts on serving our Network of organizations while providing critical transparency and accountability to our supporters.
In addition, we are excited to announce the launch of the Sports Philanthropy Draft Challenge. CLICK HERE TO PLAY. You have the chance to play the contest in eight selection increments so you can jump in even if you miss part of the draft. You can set your picks in advance so that you don’t even have to be watching or picking during the draft.
Since sports have virtually disappeared due to COVID-19, the NFL Draft will garner enormous exposure. Join us for some fun and to help us raise money to assist organizations fighting through the coronavirus struggles.
The NFL Draft will continue to prove our adage that #SportsPhilanthropyNeverSleeps.
We encourage you to join our Webinars each week. Our topics have generated a lot of interest and we continue to explore additional ways to support our Network during this crisis. We hope this forum will create a supportive environment for everyone in our Network and beyond.
As you have seen over the last month, we have focused on:
- Hosting Webinars every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
- Creating a COVID-19 Sports Resource Page
- Increasing our production schedule to release a Podcast every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday during the coronavirus crisis.
- FREE WEBINAR SERIES–Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to foster interaction, collaboration and learning during this challenging time
Check out our resource page which has lessons, tips, ideas and links to organizations that are offering free resources and free consultations to help through this difficult time. We hope you take advantage of these resources!
