The Super Bowl LVI Week festivities will positively impact the Los Angeles community with more than 30 charitable activities and community outreach events that will provide lasting legacies.
Super Bowl Week activities include community projects made possible by NFL Foundation Super Bowl Legacy Grants and the Super Bowl LVI Host Committee, community greening projects, Salute to Service events to honor the military and veterans, NFL PLAY 60 Kids Day and a community event involving the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.
As part of the ongoing social justice work through its Inspire Change initiative, the NFL will join Cisco to address the digital divide for the children of incarcerated parents, providing children with the opportunity to partake in a special event to record messages that are shared with their parents. The digital divide has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and has increased barriers to education, particularly for individuals in underserved communities.
With support from an NFL and Bob Woodruff Foundation Salute to Service Grant, Move United launched the first USA Wheelchair Football League for athletes with disabilities, including veterans. The NFL is proud to host a tournament and championship game during Super Bowl week.
The NFL will also celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and recognize the importance of allyship together with Covenant House of California and the LGBT Center. NFL players will join the celebration and deliver notes of allyship and support for the LGBTQ+ community completed by players throughout the league.
For the last 18 months, the NFL Business Connect program has worked with 225 local diverse business owners in Los Angeles to prepare them to compete for and win contracts related to Super Bowl LVI. The program hosts professional development workshops and networking events designed to grow the business acumen of women-, minority-, veteran- and LGBTQ+-owned businesses.
The youth and high school football community will be celebrated throughout Super Bowl LVI. Student-athletes and coaches will have the opportunity to enhance their football skills and learn the values associated with the game.
Each year, the NFL seeks to leave a legacy in the Super Bowl host community through its Super Bowl Legacy Grant initiative by awarding a $1 million grant to nonprofit organizations in the surrounding communities.
This year, the Super Bowl LVI Legacy Grant Program – Champions Live Here – recognized 56 grassroots organizations through grant assistance and other support for making a transformative impact in their communities. Over the past eight months, the host committee has showcased these unsung heroes by harnessing the spotlight of the Super Bowl's long-awaited return to the region. Each organization received a $10,000 grant, professionally produced marketing videos, and public recognition of their work. Six of these organizations received a total grant award of $50,000 to make an even bigger impact in their community.
