The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at work

From Eye On Annapolis:

Annapolis Police Department K-9s just received a K-9 vehicle alarm system paid for with a grant from the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund to the Chesapeake K-9 Fund. The Chesapeake K-9 Fund sought the grant to support the Annapolis Police Department’s K-9 Unit. The grant, which totaled $2,719.99, was awarded in November of 2018.

The Chesapeake K-9 Fund is a 501c (3) charity located in Annapolis, MD whose mission is to help offset costs for law enforcement K-9 units in the Chesapeake Bay area.

The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund supports police and fire departments throughout the U.S. with an emphasis on support for K-9 units and service dogs.

The money was awarded in November of 2018 and was already used to purchase two K-9 bullet and stab protective vests for Annapolis Police K-9s Cal and Roxy. Now a K-9 vehicle alarm system has been purchased using the remaining grant money. The alarm system will be installed in a vehicle used to transport K-9s in the Annapolis Police Department’s K-9 Unit. The alarm system is designed to assure the health and safety of the dog while in the vehicle, especially when the handler is outside the vehicle. The system has sensors to track temperature as well as the vehicle’s battery voltage. When problems are detected, the system activates a siren with a special warning signal, displays a message on an LCD display and sends an alert to the handler on a mobile device.

Steeler Nation, you can help our Nation’s police and fire agencies with police and rescue K9’s, as well as equipment, by donating to Ben’s foundation here!

Sunday Spotlight

…on this Memorial Day Weekend!

“I lost my disabled veteran ex-husband, yet still best friend of 30+ years, this past December. He was only 53-years old. A Pennsylvania native, Rich loved his Country & gave 20 years of service in the United States Air Force. He also loved his Steelers so much and bled Black & Gold! Our children and I would be so grateful and proud [to see him on Ben’s website]. Rich would be too. Thank you!” — Suzanne Zoller & the Zoller Family.

Suzanne and family (and Rich), consider it our pleasure and our honor! God bless you!

The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation announces new guidelines for the 2019 Grant Cycle

Today, Ben announced the opening of the 2019 grant cycle for the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund.

This marks the 13th season of grants for Ben’s foundation. The majority of the grants distributed will help police and fire department K-9 units to purchase dogs and dog safety vests, but other types of K-9 specific needs will be considered.

Ben’s foundation plans to distribute grants in the cities and surrounding communities of each regular season away game for the Steelers during the 2019 NFL season including Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Phoenix, New York City and Baltimore. We invite police and fire departments in these eight communities to submit proposals detailing their needs. In addition, the Foundation will make grants to several police and fire department K-9 units in the Pittsburgh area following Super Bowl LIV.

The mission of the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation is to support K-9 units of police and fire departments throughout the United States with a particular emphasis on support for service dogs in Pittsburgh, PA. In addition, Ben has hosted a number of events to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, his high school alma mater and other organizations close to his heart. The foundation has distributed in excess of $2.1 million since 2007, $1.7 million of which has specifically benefited K-9 programs.

In commenting on why the mission of the foundation is so important to him, Roethlisberger said, “We’re very fortunate to be in the position that we are able to help these K-9 units. The work that is performed by the dogs and their handlers as well as the bond that is formed is incredible. We’re just thrilled to do our small part.”

Full grant guidelines and application cover page are available at https://www.givingback.org/ben-roethlisberger-foundation-application-2019/.

*Applications and supporting documents must be mailed and postmarked by August 15th.
