Founded in 1967, the National Football League Alumni Association is the most well-known and well-respected retired player organization. A non-profit organization comprised mainly of retired National Football League players, coaches, professionals, cheerleaders, spouse and associate members. The focus of NFL Alumni is to serve, assist, and inform players in their post-NFL lives. The Association offers a variety of medical, financial, educational, and social programs to keep members and their families healthy, productive and connected.
With our dual mission of "Caring For Our Own" and "Caring For Kids", NFL Alumni is an advocate for all former players while also engaging them to give back to their communities by raising funds for youth charities. NFL Alumni members are organized into chapters around the country and with a history going back to 1967, the NFL Alumni's fundraising efforts typically raise more than $1 million per year for charity.
