What we aim to solve

Transform the time around the Super Bowl into the nation's largest celebration of giving and serving. We believe: The idea for Souper Bowl of Caring is a gift from God Young people have the ability to serve and should be given opportunities to lead their communities in helping others Every dollar collected through Souper Bowl of Caring should be donated directly to a charity selected by each participating group People of all backgrounds and beliefs can work together Hunger and poverty have a negative impact on individuals and the communities in which they live, yet there is joy in serving and giving to those in need The excitement and energy surrounding the Super Bowl can be used to engage young people in service while producing lasting hope for all people

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Using the energy of the Super Bowl to mobilize youth in a united national effort to care for people in their local communities who are hungry and those in need.

From the beginning, we believed the SBoC idea was a gift from God. It became clear that if we would instruct every participating organization to give 100% of their SBoC collection directly to the charity of their choice and that if we would also provide resources to interested groups at no cost to them, organizations would have almost no reason NOT to participate. Said differently, it seems our absorbing the small burden of administering the effort while also directing churches to give 100% to charities, freed people to experience the magnetic grace of God rather than fret over “where the money is really going.” We want everyone who watches the big game to think about others. Even $1 given to hunger solutions by each person watching the big game would go a long way!

Our organization has great capacity to do great work as we have the right model for this solution. Utilizing youth to mobilize their communities and keeping everything local is impactful. Our biggest challenge has been that we are asking people to give everything to their charity of choice. That means we have a very hard time fundraising for ourselves. We have a high ROI, with every $1 to us making $25 for hunger solutions, but we have to create a sustainable fundraising model so that we can be more consistent year to year. We are well on our way at this time but need more consistent support from those who care about hunger solutions and youth in our communities.

More organizations involved = More food donated to hunger solutions during our campaign More knowledge about what we do = More partners who will give to the Souper Bowl of Caring consistently and more NFL teams involved

We raise over $10 million a year during our two and a half week campaign across our nation. We currently have eight great NFL teams supporting our mission. We would like to have all of our NFL teams partner with us in our efforts to have youth involved in their communities across the nation (not just in certain locations). We have, on average, about 10,000 organizations take part in their own Souper Bowl of Caring campaign in their local communities. We would like to double that over the next ten years.
