The Kelly for Kids Foundation was established in 1987 by former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to support organizations that assist children in the western New York region. Since its inception, the foundation has raised nearly $5 million dollars.
Through its Community Grants program, the foundation is inviting applications from health and social service organizations that serve the region's disabled and/or economically disadvantaged youth. Grants will be awarded to support innovative programs that directly assist children in need and/or provide equipment and physical improvements for organizations dedicated to programs for disadvantaged children and teens.
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in and serving youth in western New York State.
See the Kelly for Kids Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
