PeyBack Foundation Announces $581,000 in Grants

Posted May 16, 2013

Quarterback Peyton Manning’s PeyBack Foundation will distribute the donations to youth-based organizations in each of the states he’s called home.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Quarterback Peyton Manning continued his offseason of giving back off the field with the announcement of more than half a million dollars in grants on Thursday.

The donations will be distributed to more than 90 youth-based community organizations in Colroado, Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana in 2013.

“The mission and work of the PeyBack Foundation is something we are very passionate about,” said Manning, who is the foundation’s president. “We are pleased to add Colorado to our giving cycle and are proud of the positive impact that so many youth-based organizations in this state, as well as in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana, have on our communities.”

Locally, Colorado charities will receive $288,750 in donations. Those groups include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado, Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver, Denver Public Schools Foundation, South Suburban Park and Recreation District, YMCA of Metro Denver and 32 other youth-related organizations.

The foundation is also donating $52,500 to 12 organizations in Indiana, where Manning spent 14 seasons playing for the Indianapolis Colts, $78,750 to 15 organizations in Louisiana, where Manning grew up and $161,000 to 25 groups in Tennessee, where Manning played college football.

The PeyBack Foundation, a public non-profit corporation, was established by Peyton Manning in 1999 to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership growth and opportunities for children at risk. The PeyBack Foundation has donated more than $6.5 million through its grants and programs since its inception.

Requests for grants are accepted from non-profit agencies and organizations actively advancing the welfare of disadvantaged children in Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana and Tennessee. All requests for financial assistance are given careful consideration by the PeyBack Foundation, and grants are awarded based on the unique merits of the individual agency, its goal and mission.

Each organization must complete a PeyBack Foundation grant application to be considered. Grant application information will be available online at www.peytonmanning.com in September.
