NFL Player Care Foundation

The NFL Player Care Foundation (PCF) is an independent foundation created in 2007 through a partnership among NFL owners, the NFL Players Association, Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the NFL Alumni Association. It is dedicated to helping retired NFL players improve their quality of life by addressing their medical, emotional, financial, social, and community needs. Resources and referrals to provide assistance are also identified for retired players to support these needs. Since its inception, PCF has screened more than 5,000 retired players and identified numerous medical issues that were addressed immediately, thus saving lives. In addition to hosting 10 Healthy Body & Mind screening events each year, PCF has granted more than $14.3 million to former players in need through financial grants and educational scholarships. PCF, supported by the NFL Alumni Association, is proud to partner with one of the nation’s premier medical providers – Tulane University School of Medicine – to conduct its annual Super Bowl Week Healthy Body & Mind Screening program. This complimentary national program is open to all former NFL players and includes cardiovascular and prostate screenings and mental health resources and education.
