Everyone knows that the National Football League has great players, but did you know that a lot of them give back to their communities? Here's one example: "The Brett Favre Fourward Foundation's mission is to provide aid to disadvantaged or disabled children in Wisconsin and Mississippi."
The foundation supports national organizations with programs in Wisconsin and Mississippi which help remove barriers to attain self-sufficiency for disadvantaged children. Another focus is youth programs for disadvantaged children and children with disabilities.
This foundation works with a number of different charities such as Special Olympics, Make A Wish Foundation, Boys and Girls Club and Gaits to Success. For those interested in applying for a grant, go to http://www.brettfavre.com/foundation_about.php.
