Founded by 2x Super Bowl Champion and Ravens “Ring of Honor” inductee Matt Stover and philanthropy expert Seth McDonnell, Players Philanthropy Fund (PPF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity that enables athletes, entertainers and other philanthropists to create a dedicated fund that can accept tax-deductible contributions in support of any qualified charitable mission.
The PPF platform offers a simple, efficient and cost-effective solution for collecting and distributing charitable assets, which provides a desirable alternative to the complexity, hassle and burden of operating an independent foundation. PPF will inspire and empower your philanthropy, while ensuring full compliance with legal requirements and nonprofit best practices to protect against any unnecessary risk to your valuable reputation.
It's a win/win.
HOW PPF WORKS

Contributions may be invested and grow tax free over time.
- GIVE TO YOUR CAUSE

When handled improperly, charitable giving can involve risk and expose you to unwanted scrutiny from the IRS and the public at large. Your charitable assets will be managed diligently by an organization that is familiar with the latest tax codes and investment strategies*. Additionally, your charity you select to support will be vetted by our staff to ensure it is in good standing with the IRS. We protect not only your charitable assets, but your brand.
