Eagles Charitable Foundation (ECF) was founded in 1995, and with the help of our partners and supporters, we have reached more than one million children in the Philadelphia region through health and education programs.

The organization has recently experienced a number of exciting changes, including a transition from its previous name, Eagles Youth Partnership. Additionally, ECF has amplified its work by expanding access to vision care, as well as increasing its commitment to autism research and services.

ECF takes its services directly to kids at their schools and in their neighborhoods. Its signature program – the Eagles Eye Mobile – leverages the celebrity and excitement of the Philadelphia Eagles football team, enabling us to capture the attention of the hardest-to-reach children in our region. The organization also partners with local non-profits and leading medical institutions to provide grants focused on supporting autism research and services.

Vision Statement

Improving health outcomes for children in vision care and autism in the Greater Philadelphia community.

Mission Statement

Using our unique platform to provide children in the Philadelphia region greater access to vision care and autism research and services.


The Philadelphia Eagles Football Club is ECF’s largest funder, providing free office space at the NovaCare Complex, staff support and other resources.

ECF relies on funds from the public, as well as from the Philadelphia Eagles Football Club and other generous companies and foundations. At its current annual budget of approximately $1.7 million, the organization is fiscally sound and is poised for growth.
