Who is GGAF?
Message from Coach
"Thanks for taking the time to visit our site. The Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund is an organization that is close to my heart for many reasons and after reading more about why we do what we do, I’m sure you’ll feel the same way. It took great fans to build the empire that is American Football and it will take great fans that help us overcome the epidemic that is facing our Greats right now. Thanks for your support."
Coach Mike Ditka
The Need is Real
Many NFL players, who helped build, shape and mold the NFL into what it is today, are paying the price physically, mentally and emotionally from their on-the-field efforts as an NFL player.
Some retired players have not benefited from some of the benefits and pensions of the modern era. They lack adequate disability, rehabilitation, health insurance and retirement programs to allow for and maintain a quality of life and financial security for themselves.
