Gridiron Heroes is funded solely through private contributions and operates on a minimal annual budget. Administrative and fundraising expenses are below charitable standards as established through Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, with oversight by a non-paid and voluntary board of directors. Your tax-deductible gifts will truly make a difference in the lives and well-being of our Gridiron Heroes.
