Welcome to the official fan site of Ben Roethlisberger2019-05-12T01:58:57+00:00

The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation open grant season is winding down!

The month of August heralds the beginning of training camp & the NFL Pre-Season games….and the end of the 2019 open grant season for Ben’s foundation!

Police & Fire Agencies, don’t delay!! Applications and supporting documents must be mailed and postmarked by August 15th!!

This year marks the 13th season of grants for his 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.

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

A talented artist, a work of art, and a great cause

So back in May, a local Pittsburgh area artist by the name of Tempy Moore shared her beautiful Steelers – Big Ben piece with us after attending Ben’s autograph signing (and getting Ben to sign it) in Monroeville:

“Finalized this pastel Ben Roethlisberger tribute today! Ben was so nice and a true class act. So happy he loved it. He said that it was, “So awesome” like 20 times, and his eyes and face lit up! So happy to share my talents with him and thank him personally for just being Big Ben!” — Tempy Moore.

About this amazing artist:

“I taught myself how to draw from a very young age. I love adding details to pieces like this. This is probably my best piece to date. I learn something new every drawing still always learning. This is chalk pastel on Museum Ampersand Board. Took me approximately 600 hours on and off, mother of 2 teens & grade school art teacher.”

After her work was shared here and on Ben’s social media pages, fans flooded us with requests for prints of this work….

Well not only did Tempy hear you, she is answering you with 250 prints for purchase!! But there’s more….

Tempy is generously donating 40% of the proceeds for each purchase of a print of this beautiful work of art to the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation!!

The prints are $200 each and Tempy is paying the shipping — that’s right, free shipping!

Purchase your print and help Ben’s foundation here!

Ben’s ProCamps photo album keeps growing

…thanks to all the great folks who have been sharing with us!

This weekend, new HOPE participant Ja’Quan was a special guest at the Ben Roethlisberger Football ProCamp where he was awarded with the Coach ‘Hep’ Don’t Quit Award! He received this prestigious award for his resiliency, leadership and skill shown on and off of the field. Ja’Quan is the oldest of three siblings who he works hard to be a good role model for. On March 27th, 2019, Ja’Quans family unexpectedly lost their father. This unlikely event caused Ja’Quan to dig deep to persevere as he, overnight, became the man of the house.

Aside from this award, Ja’Quan ran the fastest 400mm dash out of all 300 youth who attended the camp! Now that’s speed! 🏃🏾 🏃🏾🏃🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Thank you Ben Roethlisberger and Tickets for Kids for this amazing opportunity. 🏈 🏆 #GoJaQuanGo Hope For Tomorrow, Inc.
