Focus Areas

Staying true to our principles of "Team, Effort, Tradition", the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation works to deliver our mission through education, community outreach and health and wellness initiatives to elementary through high school-age students in the region.

    

1. Start Smart: Provide elementary school students with the resources they need to confidently go back to school and bring excitement to learning initiatives to encourage development, specifically literacy, throughout the year.

 

2. Live Well: Educate kids on how to live well by eating right and encourage all young fans to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

 

3. Youth Football: Assist youth players, coaches and parents in promoting the game of football through proper instruction, education and sportsmanship

 

4. Finish Strong: Guide students through access to resources and opportunities to become well-rounded citizens, ultimately preparing their game plan for the next step in life.

 

5. Season of Sharing: Ensure local families and children in need are supported with food, coats and gifts to make the holidays a little brighter. Provide the resources and support so all young people have the same opportunities to be successful.
