Grant Cycle

Grant Cycle

The mission of the Raiders Foundation is to uplift the community through support of military members and veterans, health and wellness initiatives and youth development efforts. The Foundation is driven by a legacy and unwavering commitment to advance social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in everything we do. Since 2018, the Foundation has given over $6M to help those in need.

Our Key Community Investment Areas

The Foundation is excited to announce Impact Grants which will be awarded through two grant cycles annually. Program grants will be provided between $2,500 - $25,000.

  • Spring 2024 Grant Cycle: Applications open March 1 at 9:00am PT and close March 31 at 5:00pm PT
  • Fall 2024 Grant Cycle: Dates TBD

For a request to be considered, please take a moment to read the following guidelines:

Organizational Requirements

Your organization must:

  • Be a registered 501(c)(3) tax exempt/non-profit organization.
  • Be actively registered with the Secretary of State of Nevada.
  • NOT be a school or youth football development program (see below)
  • NOT have received a grant from the Raiders in the past 12 months.
  • Demonstrate diversity by providing services and volunteer opportunities to all without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, or disability.
  • Exhibit sound leadership and strong programing that will strengthen the Las Vegas community.

At this time, please DO NOT apply for this grant if your request is for:

  • Football Development: The Raiders are committed to expanding access to youth football, including material support for youth football organizations, high school football teams in the region, and girls flag football programs. To learn more, please click here. Due to the current programs and opportunities offered by the Raiders for football development in the community, these organizations will not be eligible to apply for Raiders Foundation Impact Grants.
  • A School: The Raiders organization has an ongoing, larger partnership with Clark County School District (CCSD) and other schools. In 2023, the Raiders Foundation granted over $175,000 to local schools. Due to the Raiders support of schools throughout the year, schools will not be eligible to apply for Raiders Foundation Impact Grants.
