Off the field, Johnny Unitas’ charity work was just as impressive as his playing statistics and numerous wins. He carried the ideals of football forward into his community, striving to make an impact and bettering the lives of others. In 1987, Johnny Unitas started The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation to promote the game of football as well as provide financial assistance to underprivileged and deserving young athletes.
Since our inception, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation has donated over $750,000 through college scholarships to graduating high school scholar athletes to pursue their higher education and continue playing football. In addition, we give back to our community youth football leagues in both Kentucky and Maryland.
Without the support of our community, these scholarships and assistance programs would not be possible. We hope you will find it in your heart to be a part of our significant efforts to provide our youth with a quality education while promoting the game of football. If you would like to participate and join in on our mission, please send your tax-deductible contribution to The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation, Inc.
