About Peyback Foundation Inc
Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning established the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. The Foundation focuses its efforts in a three state region and has donated more than $4.3 million to youth organizations in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana since its inception (the Foundation will begin supporting youth-based organizations in Colorado beginning in 2013). The Foundation supports numerous organizations and programs through its grant program, but also operates and funds several of its own programs for underprivileged children. The Foundation carefully selects programs that it can support financially and considers the grant program a partnership with these organizations, not just an exchange of money. The Foundation has become a consistent and viable part of the communities of Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana in terms of underprivileged children and looks forward to supporting oragnizations in Colardo as well.
