NFL Announces $2 Million Super Bowl Legacy Grant, Benefitting More Than 25 Community Projects Throughout Super Bowl Host Community
Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill, Commissioner Roger Goodell,
Host Committee Representatives Recognize Grant Recipients
Super Bowl leaves an impact long after the game has come and gone. As it does every year, the NFL seeks to improve the surrounding communities of the Super Bowl host city with a financial donation. This year, the NFL Foundation provided a $1 million grant to the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee via the Arizona Community Foundation to fund charitable projects throughout Arizona to support health and wellness programs for the Arizona community. This grant was matched by the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee for a total of more than $2 million.
Representatives from the NFL, Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee and the Arizona Cardinals gathered today to recognize the recipients of this year’s Super Bowl Legacy Grants. Arizona Cardinals President MICHAEL BIDWILL, NFL Commissioner Roger GOODELL and Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman DAVID ROUSSEAU made the announcement at ASU Preparatory Academy School, one of this year’s grant recipient locations. Before its Super Bowl makeover, the field at ASU Prep was in subpar condition for the thousands of youth who utilized it for organized sports and intramurals.
The event also recognized the Arizona Interscholastic Association’s (AIA) support of USA Football’s Heads Up Football program. The AIA’s support of Heads Up Football is part of Arizona’s comprehensive approach to student-athlete health. Following the press conference, high school athletic directors and football coaches from around the state attended an education session on the Heads Up Football program. Heads Up Football, which includes a focus on education and certification, equipment fitting, concussion recognition and awareness, heat and hydration, and Heads Up Tackling, was launched in 2012 by USA Football with the NFL’s support. As part of today’s event, ESPN also announced their support of Heads Up Football by donating $30,000 towards the initiative to help Arizona-based high school coaches become Heads Up Football certified in 2015.
A list of Super Bowl Legacy Grant recipients and the projects being funded by the NFL Foundation’s $1 million grant and the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee foundation’s $1 million contribution is below.

AARON RODGERS RALLIES PACKERS WITH LATE TOUCHDOWN VOTED 2014 GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE YEAR
Winner Selected By Fan Vote on NFL.com/GMC
Green Bay Packers quarterback AARON RODGERS’ inspiring Week 6 performance is the 2014 GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE YEAR, the NFL announced today. This marks the second consecutive year Rodgers and the Packers take home the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year honor.
Rodgers’ Week 6 performance was selected from a group of five moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The five finalists were selected among 17 of the most memorable GMC Never Say Never Moments during the 2014 NFL season.
Rodgers’ 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end ANDREW QUARLESS with three seconds remaining gave the Green Bay Packers a 27-24 win over the Miami Dolphins. Rodgers overcame a fumble and a fourth-and-10 situation on the winning drive, which also included a fake intentional spike for a 12-yard gain to rookie receiver DAVANTE ADAMS that set up the winning score. The Packers twice gave up their lead on the Dolphins, and trailed 24-17 before Rodgers directed a 68-yard drive that resulted in a field goal. The Packers forced a punt and started at their own 40-yard line with 2:04 remaining en route to their third consecutive win.
“GMC would like to congratulate Aaron Rodgers on winning this year’s GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year Award. His incredible play and leadership is the epitome of determination, perseverance and teamwork,” said Rich Latek, GMC marketing director. “These characteristics are demonstrated everyday by GMC’s engineers creating professional grade trucks, crossovers and SUVs for our customers.”
Each week during the regular season, the NFL selected three nominees for the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER Moments of the Week from which the fans voted for a winner on NFL.com/GMC. From those weekly winners, the five GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year finalists were selected (listed in the chart below). Read more
