Ravens Provide Youth Football Grants To 18 Local Programs

The Ravens Foundation, Inc. has awarded youth football grants to 18 nonprofit programs in the state of Maryland. In continuing their commitment to enhance the quality of area youth football, the Baltimore Ravens and Under Armour will provide grants for new football equipment and apparel to 23 teams that represent outstanding programs and help make a positive impact on their respective communities.

Now in its sixth year, the grant serves as a pipeline between the Ravens and youth football teams to promote, improve and facilitate the healthy development of children in the community. Each recipient will utilize its grant to purchase Under Armour packages that may include jerseys, cleats, socks, footballs, gloves and/or mouth guards.

Through the Ravens football outreach program, Ravens RISE, the team annually serves both youth and high school football by contributing more than 800 cleats to area football programs, donating weight-training equipment, hosting clinics for youth football coaches, honoring area high school coaches through the Ravens Coach of the Week program, and recognizing outstanding high school football matchups through the Ravens High School Game of the Week. Additionally, the Ravens invite area football teams to attend training camp and home games throughout the season. The team also hosts various tournaments and clinics, presented by Under Armour. Most recently, these have included the Ravens 7-on-7 High School Football Tournament and the Play Like A Raven Football Clinics.
