RASHAD JENNINGS FOUNDATION IN ACTION
We’re making a difference in their world, so they can be the difference in ours.
We are inspiring youth by making education fun, providing mentorship for individual success, and promoting health and fitness worldwide.
Rashad’s heart is to leave a legacy through his Foundation through the NFL players coming behind him. In an effort to assist NFL players in giving back to their communities, the Rashad Jennings Foundation creates and implements branded programs into schools for individual athletes throughout all 32 NFL teams.

The NFL Players Association annually recognizes players who go above and beyond to perform community service in their team cities and hometowns. In 2016, the NFLPA named our Founder, Rashad Jennings, a top 5 finalist for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award. The award was established by the professional football players of America to acknowledge a debt of gratitude to one of their own, Supreme Court Justice Byron Raymond “Whizzer” White—scholar, athlete, patriot, humanitarian and public servant. The NFLPA presents this prestigious annual award to the player that is just as dedicated off the field as he is on it. We are excited to announce that Rashad has been recognized in the top 32 for 2017! This year’s top 5 finalists will be announced at the end of January 2017. Thank you for the recognition, NFLPA!
