EAGLES CARE

The Eagles support hundreds of non-profits in the Greater Philadelphia area through year-round Community Relations efforts. Core to that work is the Eagles Care initiative built off of our belief that strong non-profits build strong communities. Through these season-long strategic partnerships with non-profits we are able to jointly increase the positive impact to a community we share.

Eagles Care was established to create annual, strategic partnerships with local nonprofits in order to increase the impact of the team’s community efforts. Each of these three partners has the comfort of consistent and conscious support from the Eagles to create mutually beneficial and measurable results.

The Eagles believe there is no offseason to good citizenship, and we are pleased to partner with Dignity Housing, The Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory and Ryan's Case for Smiles as we work together to strengthen and support a high quality of life for generations of Eagles fans.

Dignity Housing is the first housing and supportive services program in the nation to be founded and guided by homeless people and activists. Its mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty that confronts low-income families and individuals in the City of Philadelphia. Dignity provides safe, quality affordable subsidized housing, promoting self-sufficiency, and creating opportunities. The housing and social services organization currently manages an inventory of 58 units of affordable housing located in Northwest Philadelphia. For more information, please visit DignityHousing.org.

Philadelphia Wooden boat Factory was founded in 1996 by Geoffrey McKonly, who believed disengaged youth needed a hands-on activity in a constructive environment to help them develop and apply academic skills. Nearly two decades later, the organization works to engage urban teens in hands-on boat building and on-water programming to nurture the problem solving, communication and collaboration skills needed to become confident, capable adults.

Ryan's Case for Smiles is solely dedicated to helping kids feel better to heal better, and works to improve the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo treatment. Founded in 2007, Ryan’s Case for Smiles brings comfort and support to young patients and their families in hospitals around the globe. What started out with whimsical pillowcases that gave children an emotional boost during treatment has now turned into a program that embraces a child’s entire family so they can better navigate and cope with a very difficult experience and avoid long term emotional trauma.
