For Those Who Stayed


About Us


Your tax-deductible donation will enable us to provide resources for players and personnel affiliated with the University of Michigan Football program who have fallen on hard times after leaving the university.  Health and well-being are not a guarantee when a career is over despite the level of success one might have had.  Life presents challenges along the way that are very real and in many cases dire, leaving our teammates with no place to turn.  Please consider donating to this noble cause and help us build this resource that gives them peace of mind knowing that they are forever part of a family that looks after its own.  We are MICHIGAN FOOTBALL and we will never leave anyone behind.  Help us uphold the Michigan tradition of being the Leaders and Best!
