The foundation of the NFL announced that he will donate $100,000 to the LGBTQ+ youth mental health and suicide prevention organization, The Trevor Project.

“We are extremely proud to continue our partnership with The Trevor Project and work together to expand our efforts around inclusion and continue to strengthen our relationship with the LGBTQ+ community“said the vice president and director of diversity and inclusion, Jonathan Beane.

Beane praised the organization’s work to create a good environment among young people.

“The work The Trevor Project does to support LGBTQ+ youth and mental health is outstanding; we are excited to continue our work with an organization that impacts countless lives around the world“added the spokesman.

This donation made by the NFL Foundation is equal to that made by Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Carl Nassib in 2021.

In that year, Nassib was the first active NFL player to came out as gay and donated $100,000 to the organization.

In June 2022, Nassib announced his association with this organization and encouraged fans to donate to The Trevor Project to support the work they do, in addition to pledging to match donations made up to $100,000.
