Born from our team’s core values of partnership and teamwork, the Eagles Care initiative began in 2013 focusing on nonprofit capacity building. Through the program, the team partners with nonprofits to provide mostly non-traditional assets which strengthen and support their growth. Partners receive a year of full, unrestricted support across the board via education, mentoring and resource allocation designed to increase the Eagles’ and nonprofit’s impact.
Our application process will not begin until February 2019. If your organization would like to learn more about the Eagles Care partnership for the 2019-2020 season, please contact Claire Kirby at firstname.lastname@example.org. A list of frequently asked questions is below, but if your question is not answered there, please feel free to reach out to Claire for assistance.

From staff training to in-kind donations to special gameday experiences, our Eagles Care partners receive access to all organizational assets and are the first place we offer most opportunities that the team is able to provide.

To that end, please do not feel the need to exaggerate your numbers to seem like a bigger force on social media (for example) than you are. We want to know where you stand in those areas and to see if we can help you grow.
Partnerships last for one year, generally from July to July, however Eagles Care partners remain a part of the family through the Eagles Care Network after the initial partnership year is over.
In past years we have selected between 3-5 Eagles Care partners and expect the number will be similar for 2019.
We take many elements into consideration, including: Eagles priority issue areas, the nonprofit’s location and size and its ability to benefit from and provide benefits to the partnership.
