On Monday, Jameis Winston’s Dream Forever Foundation was awarded a $5,000 grant from the NFL Foundation as part of the NFL’s initiative to help players get more involved in social causes within their community. The grant funding will support the Dream Forever Foundation’s educational programs for disadvantaged youth in Tampa Bay.

Winston, who was drafted by the Buccaneers in 2015, has been active in the community since his arrival several years ago. In December, Winston held his third annual Famous Jameis Jamboree, which treated 20 students from the local Boys & Girls Club to a dream day at Busch Gardens. At the end of February, he and WWE star Titus O’Neil hosted 130 students for a special private screening of the movie “Black Panther.” Just this past week, Winston and his foundation unveiled their inaugural Jameis’ Dream Room at Alexander Elementary School. The NFL Foundation Social Justice Grant will allow Winston and his foundation to continue enriching students’ lives through innovative learning programs.

The NFL Foundation’s Social Justice Grant program provides grant funding to nonprofit organizations whose missions are focused around social justice causes and have been financially supported by an NFL Player. According to the NFL Foundation’s website, the grants are designed to reduce barriers to opportunity through a focus on education, criminal justice reform, poverty, racial equality, and many other causes.

There is a growing need for young minds working in science and technology fields, particularly those from diverse communities. This grant will allow Winston’s foundation to continue to provide low-income students with access to state-of-the-art tech equipment, helping to grow interest in STEM careers within urban schools.
