Philadelphia Professional Football Cheerleader Alumni’s (PPFCA) charitable mission is to support philanthropies and charities that benefit children and families.

PPFCA is committed to continuing the rich legacy of Philadelphia NFL Cheerleading. We pride ourselves on honoring the tradition of supporting the community through philanthropy and charitable endeavors, just as we did as NFL Cheerleaders.

If an alumni requests PPFCA monetary assistance, there is a protocol and vetting process that must be followed to ensure the charity is in line with our mission and the monetary donation is the best use of our support.

PPFCA charitable giving decision-making guidelines:

  1. According to PPFCA 501(c)(7) bylaws, 5 percent of the membership fees collected from the prior year will be set aside for charitable donations for the following year. (For example, 5 percent of 2023 membership fees will go to 2024 charitable donations.) The allocated 5 percent will be split into equal parts and given to four charities each year, on a first come, first served basis.
  2. Applicants must be a fully registered PPFCA Member and up-to-date with membership dues.
  3. Only donation requests made by 501(c)(3) registered charitable organizations with a valid and current Federal EIN number will be considered.
  4. Given the number of alumni and our desire to be fair and supportive to our members, the specific charity will only be eligible for a donation every three years.
  5. Applicants must submit a request form to our Community Affairs Chairperson for review. For a request form, send email to [email protected].
  6. Upon review by our Community Affairs Chairperson, the request will be considered based on its alignment with the mission of our alumni organization. Once the request is vetted and approved for review, it will be sent to the PPFCA Board to vote upon.
  7. Upon PPFCA Board Approval, the money for that year will be considered allocated.
  8. The PPFCA Board will notify the applicant of the status of the donation within two weeks.
  9. Special consideration may be given to an unforeseen need by a member under specific circumstances at the discretion of the PPFCA Board.
