Wow! Just wow. This is so incredible that the fans of the team that beat us in the Super Bowl would be so selfless to give back to an organization started by one of our own.
Jason Kelce started the foundation (Be) Philly Foundation in October of 2022 with the mission of funding programs that directly help Philadelphia youth.
The organization is “investing in the next generation” according to their website.
(Be)Philly provides financial support and increased visibility to charitable organizations with a proven track record of improving the education and economic outcomes of students in the Philadelphia public schools. We also create original media content to lead a conversation around social impact in our city, so we can find out what works, and how to do more of it.
They serve this community because, as we know, the children are our future!
The (Be)Philly Foundation is primarily focused on improving the lives of students in the Philadelphia Public School system (K-12). While our larger goal is to serve all kids in greater Philadelphia area, we’ve chosen to focus our initial resources on those students who are most historically and consistently underserved.
The three main pillars of the organization are academic opportunity, economic agency and self belief and two hold those up, they take donations using two different methods; charitable donations and sales from their underdog apparel.
I mean who remembers the Super Bowl run with the dog masks? It became a bit of a staple for the team and the community. He’s capitalizing on that energy and giving back to our community which is absolutely amazing.
