The Women's Gridiron Foundation offers mentorship to football program start-ups, in-person skills clinics, resources, and unique events that aim to close the gender gap in the sport of American football.  We educate, connect and empower young women around the world to a place of greater self-worth and confidence while simultaneously increasing awareness of, and participation in, the women's game on a global scale. 

We believe that sport - specifically football - is an ideal vehicle through which essential, meaningful life skills can be learned.
When a safe, supportive space is created in which females of all ages can learn this incredible game, they will not only show up, but be empowHERed for having done so!!
