The Ravens join the NFL on specific programs designed to promote volunteerism and give back to the community.
The Baltimore Ravens and the National Football League have teamed up to honor exceptional Maryland volunteers for their devotion to bettering local communities through the annual Community Quarterback Award.
Supported by NFL Charities and the Ravens Foundation, Inc., the award recognizes individuals who exemplify dedication, leadership and commitment to improving the communities in which they live. Volunteers ages 13 and over, who provide extraordinary services for nonprofit organizations, are eligible for the 2015 program. Charitable organizations are invited to nominate their remarkable volunteers for recognition, or individuals may nominate themselves.
The selected volunteers will be acknowledged on Nov. 22 at the Ravens-Rams game at M&T Bank Stadium. Honorees will be awarded game tickets for themselves and a guest, Ravens apparel and autographed memorabilia, a commemorative trophy and a financial grant benefitting their respective nonprofit organization.

This season, the Ravens and Northrop Grumman are proud to host our country’s service men & women at each home game through the Seats for Service program. Each week, the Ravens will honor a group including, but not limited to, representatives of the military, first responders, veterans and wounded warriors. The group will receive a pregame field visit and tickets to the game in five specially designed seats. A sixth seat within the row will remain ceremoniously unoccupied and represent the POW & MIA trademark to honor soldiers who are Prisoners of War or Missing in Action.
In addition to receiving tickets to Ravens home games, each week’s honorees will also receive five tickets to the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman in Annapolis on December 28th. For more information on the Military Bowl, please visit www.militarybowl.org.
