- Who We Are
- What We Do
Since 1998, the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program has provided nearly $61 million to support the creation or refurbishment of 365 playing fields nationwide. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the NFL Foundation/LISC partnership, while the NFL is also celebrating its 100th season. This week, LISC joined the Kansas City Chiefs at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy and together we presented Kansas City Missouri Public Schools a check for $250,000 to refurbish the high school’s football field.
To celebrate its 100-year anniversary, the NFL launched “Huddle for 100”, an organization-wide initiative to empower 1 million people nationwide to each give 100 minutes of their time creating 100 million minutes of volunteerism. The Chiefs chose their “Huddle” to focus on Lincoln College Prep and the surrounding neighborhood because it’s where the team’s initial Midwestern home, Municipal Stadium, once stood. In addition to announcing the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant, the Chiefs also took the opportunity during the “Huddle” to formally announce their planned placement of a stadium marker of Municipal Stadium this fall.
