Philadelphia Eagles | End Philly Gun Violence

Eagles_AFanOfChange_WebBanner_3000x900-Recovered V2

According to Everytown for Gun Safety, more than 110 Americans are killed by guns every day. In Philadelphia, gun violence continues to be a major concern and has disproportionately affected underserved communities of color. Philadelphia experienced 514 homicides in 2022, surpassing a city record for annual homicides for the second year in a row dating back to at least 1960, according to the City Controller's Office.

Two key contributors that fuel gun violence are poverty and unemployment.

As part of the Eagles' ongoing efforts to help combat the gun violence crisis in Philadelphia, in January 2023 the team launched a multi-faceted campaign focused on breaking these cycles of poverty and violence.

The Eagles Social Justice Fund awarded $410,350 in grants to the nine local nonprofits featured below that provide financial education and support for violence prevention. In just five years, the Fund has provided area-based organizations with more than $2 million in funding.

In an effort to inspire hope within the community and drive traffic and engagement to the nonprofits chosen, the Eagles also launched 'A Fan of Change,' a digital media campaign designed to play off of the tremendous passion of Eagles fans and serve as an important call to action to end gun violence once and for all.
