NKY Based Firm has Strong Ties to the Super Bowl

January 27, 2014 - Even before it was determined who would play in this year’s Super Bowl, one local firm was gearing up to join several clients in New York to help promote the good that NFL greats are doing in their communities.

Prolanthropy, a Florence KY based firm, is the largest and most successful provider of philanthropy management services in professional sports, specializing in the formation and management of non-profit foundations of professional athletes.

Prolanthropy has represented veteran client, Charles Tillman, and his foundation since the company’s inception in 2008. On January 19th, Tillman was announced as one of 3 finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. This award is given to an NFL player to honor their off the field community service, as well as playing excellence. The winner is awarded a $20,000 donation to a charity of his choice. Tillman’s 2013 nomination marks the 5th finalist from Prolanthropy’s client roster, including a 2011 win for Baltimore Raven’s center Matt Birk.

Tillman, an All Pro cornerback for the Chicago Bears, began his Cornerstone Foundation in 2005. The Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities and resources to children and families in need, impacting the lives of well over one million children in the Chicago area.

“Just be being the Bears nominee, I feel like I’ve already won,” Tillman said. “I want the foundation to get the recognition, not me personally, because I’m just one of many people who are part of something great, and that’s helping to run the foundation. Prolanthropy has been with me from the beginning and it is an honor for them, as much as it is for me. The publicity the foundation gets, to me that’s winning. Helping out those families, that’s winning.”

Prolanthropy represents clients throughout the country, including Super Bowl bound Denver Broncos’ linebacker Von Miller, and their most recent client addition, Seattle Seahawks’ free safety Earl Thomas.

Prolanthropy is sending Director of Foundation Management, Amy Grieme, to New York to represent the Cornerstone Foundation and many other Prolanthropy clients throughout the week. While attending festivities surrounding the Big Game, Grieme and the Prolanthropy staff will be working hard to keep client fans and supporters close to the celebration by providing social media updates from an insider’s perspective, and hosting contests with chances to win memorabilia from the game.
