Eagles Youth Partnership (EYP) was founded in 1995 as a 501(c)(3) public charity. The organization helps kids to reach their potential, bringing health and educational resources to more than 50,000 children each year who are facing ‘4th & long” odds. Leveraging the brand and resources of the Philadelphia Eagles Football Club, which is the organization’s largest donor, EYP operates on a $2 million annual budget and provides comprehensive vision care, literacy programs and safe spaces for children to thrive.
Signature programs include:
“Being honored with the Steve Patterson Sports Philanthropy Award gave Eagles Youth Partnership a bump in legitimacy and visibility across the field of sports philanthropy, allowing the ripple effect of our work to extend beyond our region. Since receiving the award, we have provided technical assistance for vision care programs linked to NFL teams in Cleveland and Tampa and continue to be a resource for other teams in other cities across the country. We might be fierce competitors on the field, but ‘in the field,’ we are all on the same team.”
