ATLANTA, GA (NEWS RELEASE) – Boys & Girls Clubs of America and 15 and the Mahomies Foundation are thrilled to announce a new national partnership to further invest in the great futures of today’s youth. Led by 2x NFL and Super Bowl MVP, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany Mahomes, the Foundation is making a $1.625 million dollar contribution and a multi-year commitment to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
The contribution will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the communities that have personally impacted Patrick and Brittany’s lives – Greater Kansas City, Lubbock, TX, and Tyler, TX and Whitehouse, TX. The 15 and the Mahomies Foundation will also donate $1,500 for every touchdown by Patrick during the regular season.
To commemorate the partnership, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City and Boys & Girls Club of Lubbock will recognize “15 and the Mahomies” by renaming one of their facilities, and Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas/The Mentoring Alliance site will provide scholarships for up to 300 youth to attend the Club annually. As part of their multi-year commitment, 15 and the Mahomies will actively assist Boys & Girls Clubs of America in upgrading these named facilities.
“We are truly excited to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America by investing in the future of children,” said Patrick Mahomes. “Kids who attend a Club, like Brittany once did, are provided with the necessary tools and resources to help this generation not only thrive but lead with compassion and purpose.”
“This meaningful partnership will expand opportunities for kids everywhere, and the places that have positively impacted Patrick and me,” said Brittany Mahomes. “We are committed to doing all we can to uplift others.”
“We are thrilled to be partnered with 15 and the Mahomies Foundation as we work to ensure all young people have the tools to reach their full potential,” said Jim Clark, president & CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “Thanks to Patrick and Brittany’s support, even more young people will have the opportunity to enjoy a meaningful Club experience.
