Jaguars owner Shahid Khan and Titans senior executive vice president/chief operating officer Mike Reinfeldt have been named by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to the board of NFL Foundation.
NFL Foundation and the board were created following the restructuring of NFL Charities and the NFL Youth Football.
It will award more than $23 million in grants in 2013 to support youth and high school football programs, health and safety efforts, as well as community health initiatives, including NFL PLAY 60, the league announced.
“I’m flattered to be asked by Commissioner Goodell to be among the first to serve the NFL Foundation, and naturally I’m proud to accept the invitation and get to work,” Khan said in a statement released by the Jaguars. “I’m certain we will accomplish many good things through the NFL Foundation.
"We have an opportunity and obligation to make a difference in three key areas that I am personally passionate about -- youth football, health and safety, and making a sincere investment in our communities -- and our time to make that difference is now."
Said Reinfeldt in a statement from the Titans: “I was honored that they asked me to serve on the NFL Foundation board. I am looking forward to working with this distinguished group of board members; and as a group, we are excited about making a difference through the Foundation’s work.”
