About the Players Congress
The Players Congress was launched in 2013 for the benefit of over 19,000 NFL veterans and family members of deceased players. The organization’s mission is to assist retired players, families, widows, and various Community Causes via income generated through its apparel manufacturing and import business along with held interest in other projects. The organization functions as a C-Corp (For Profit) and is owned, operated, and controlled solely by Retired Players. The Players Congress joined with manufacturing giant, J.H. Design Group, NFL Properties, and the Dallas Cowboys in a joint apparel-licensing venture that includes training and opportunities for former players. A portion of royalties are distributed to players through the Pioneer Assistance Fund, the Widows Fund, scholarship assistance and other programs.
About the NFL Player Care Foundation
Since its inception in 2007, the NFL Player Care Foundation (PCF) has used a unique case management model to aid former NFL players through challenging times. Through its financial granting arm, PCF has assisted over 900 players, totaling over $9.5 million in areas including medical, mental health, financial, social and community support. PCF is administered by a board of eight directors. The National Football League, NFL Players Association, Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the NFL Alumni Association are each appointed a nominated director. In addition, four outside directors share their expertise in foundation management, mental health, social welfare issues, and healthcare.
