The mission of the Matt Stover Foundation is to provide financial support to under-funded educational, religious and other charitable organizations.
WHY WE DO IT
The foundation is not a vehicle to promote Matt Stover or his name in the community. Matt is adamant that all foundation proceeds are placed in the hands of those in need. Matt established this foundation to promote organizations supporting good will, positive beliefs and community values.
The Matt Stover Foundation plans to continue to focus it's charitable work in the Baltimore community. The foundation will provide gifts to worthy causes and programs throughout all sectors of the community without prejudice. Programs that benefit underprivileged children are close to Matt's heart, but he has not dedicated the sole purpose of the foundation to serving only the youth.
