PayForED is excited to announce a strategic partnership with the NFL Alumni Association.
Part of the NFL Alumni’s dual mission is “Caring for Kids”. Player alumni give back to their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 35 regional chapters. As a strategic partner, the PayForED platform will provide a solution for families to guide them financially through their educational journey. The goal of the NFL Alumni Association and PayForED is to provide schools and families across the country with technology that helps more Americans go to college, graduate from college, and limit the amount of student debt that a student takes for their education.
“Education is one of the keys to bridging the divide that currently exists in America. College affordability and student loan repayment are impacting today’s society. Our goal is to provide all students a tool to help them through their journey” says Peter Sims, President of PayForED.
“We are thrilled to be part of this project,” said NFL Alumni CEO, Beasley Reece. “Providing young people with a college education without overwhelming debt aligns with our mission of Caring for Kids.”
The NFL Alumni was founded in 1967 and is the oldest and most recognizable national organization of retired professional athletes. NFL Alumni consists of former NFL players, coaches, executives, spouses, cheerleaders, and associate members.
