The Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF) is a non-stock, non-profit

501(c)(3) organization providing financial grants and 'pro bono' medical

assistance to retired NFL players in dire need. The organization focuses

on the humanitarian side of post-football related issues, which include

coordination of social services to retired players who are in need due to a

variety of reasons including inadequate disability and/or pensions.

The GGAF's mission is to assist dire need retired NFL players who were

pioneers of the game and who have greatly contributed to the NFL's status

as the most popular sport in America. GGAF provides hands-on assistance

to help retired players and their families deal with hardships they face

after football. The services include medical assistance, transportation

costs for medical evaluations and surgeries, housing assistance, financial

assistance for utilities, medication, and coordination of services for food,

automotive payments and childcare.
