The PeyBack Foundation, a public non-profit corporation, was established by Peyton Manning in 1999 to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. The PeyBack Foundation has provided more than $10 million of impact to at risk youth through its grants and programs since its inception.
Requests for grants are accepted from non-profit agencies and organizations actively advancing the welfare of disadvantaged children in Colorado, Tennessee, Louisiana and Indiana. All requests for financial assistance are given careful consideration by the PeyBack Foundation and grants are awarded based on the unique merits of the individual agency, its goal, mission and programs. Each organization must complete a PeyBack Foundation grant application to be considered. Grant application information will be available online at www.peytonmanning.com in September.
