Through the Company’s FOX Forward initiative, FOX has partnered with The Pat Tillman Veterans Center to support undergraduate and graduate students over the course of five years by providing scholarships and funding for education and mental health resources. The Pat Tillman Veterans Center, which honors Pat Tillman, an Arizona State University (ASU) graduate, pro-football star and U.S. Army veteran who lost his life while serving, is located on the ASU campus adjacent to the state-of-the-art FOX Technology Center, which opened in 2019 and will serve as the broadcasting hub for Super Bowl LVII. As part of the FOX Forward commitment, FOX Technology Center employees will also engage with PTVC student veterans to provide ongoing pathways to employment through skill building workshops, internships and more.
The Gamechanger Fund will also support the creation of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley’s new AZYouthforce West Valley Career Readiness Center, which delivers essential skills training and mentorship to teens to prepare them for internships and permanent jobs. The funding will be used to hire a career advisor and provide necessary technology to support career exploration and training. Additionally, the Gamechanger Fund grants the FOX Sports Super Bowl LVII Scholarship to Arizona’s representative for the annual Boys & Girls Clubs of America Youth of the Year competition. AZYouthforce members will also visit the FOX Sports Super Bowl compound during Super Bowl Week for a behind-the-scenes look at careers in sports media.
