Preseason has officially begun, which means the Philadelphia Eagles are a few short weeks from attempting to reclaim their title of Super Bowl champs.

The franchise just announced a few winners of its own this week: Three local nonprofit have been selected as its 2018-2019 Eagles Care community partners.

The program offers nonprofits capacity-building services — think one-on-one skills training for employees — in addition to small financial contributions, in-kind donations and player appearances at events. The new partners will also be guests at Eagles Training Camp today to kick off the yearlong partnership.

This year’s partners:

  • Laurel House — Domestic violence agency serving families in Montgomery County
  • Philadelphia Children’s Alliance (PCA) — Advocacy organization for sexually abused children in Philadelphia
  • Variety — Social services nonprofit for children and young adults with disabilities in the Delaware Valley

PCA also benefitted from some Eagles exposure this past January — just before the NFC Championship — when players Nick Foles, Jordan Hicks and Trey Burton raised money for the nonprofit via its #Give5toPCA initiative.

The quarterback, linebacker and tight-end donated a collective $50,000 and issued a call to action for Philadelphians to both give their own donations of $5 and to learn more about the scale of the issue: According to PCA, one in 10 U.S. kids are sexually abused.

From our Partners

Last year’s Eagles Care partners were Dignity Housing, Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory and Ryan’s Case for Smiles (RCFS).

“The Eagles Care partnership has been an amazing opportunity for Ryan’s Case for Smiles,” said RCFS Executive Director Melissa Lusk in a statement. “It has given us the ability to reach more families, volunteers and corporate sponsors, building awareness of our mission. The Eagles have also provided ongoing employee development opportunities that have helped us improve our day-to-day operations and maximize our effort.”

Eagles Care also hosts an annual Care Summit, a free conference offering growth opportunities for nonprofit staff ranging from leadership development to media training.
