Got Her Back 501c3 Charity, founded by WNFC Executives Odessa and Elizabeth Jenkins, is launching its second annual “Keep Her In The Game” Grant Cycle.
Today, there are over 10,000 women and girls playing organized football in the U.S. While the sport is progressing towards more funding and sponsorships, it is widely recognized as a working woman's game, meaning most adult players have full-time jobs and most girls pay to play.
In partnership with the Women's National Football Conference (WNFC), the charity launched the "Keep Her In The Game Grant Program". The grant supplies helmets, cleats and other critical equipment required for safe gameplay to women and girls playing flag or tackle football around the world.
Nine grant recipients were selected in the last series.
The program is funded by Riddell Sports and the Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC) and is open to women and girls of all ages actively participating in football.
The 2023 Keep Her in the Game program application window opens on Friday, January 20, 2023 and closes on January 31, 2023.
