WELCOME TO ATHLETES CHARITABLE

For years, well-meaning professional athletes have started foundations and charitable efforts without the proper support and in turn suffered consequences. According to ESPN, 74% of athletes’ foundations failed to meet acceptable non-profit operating standards in 2013.

Some athletes leave the operation of their foundations to friends and relatives who truly need expert guidance on how to raise and invest funding. Given the extreme workload and oversight required to run a foundation, a lot of professional athletes look elsewhere to direct their philanthropic and charitable efforts.

OUR WHY

Support

Athletes Charitable is a direct reflection of what United Charitable and the aligned employees stand for — a commitment to supporting and emboldening people along their philanthropic and charitable legacy journeys.

Strategy

Athletes Charitable takes the time and complication out of professional athletes starting their own 501c3 or private foundation. The athlete can focus on their dreams of leaving a powerful legacy, while Athletes Charitable focuses on details, strategy and compliance.

Impact

Everything from the development of a strong philanthropic brand that tells a compelling story,to establishing powerful programming that produces measurable impact.

OUR LEADER

 

Hannibal Navies is leading the charge at Athletes Charitable as Vice President of Development. Hannibal is a 9-year NFL Veteran, social entrepreneur, influencer, and founder of 360 Sports Academy and the Hannibal Navies Foundation. In addition to being part of the brotherhood of the NFL, Hannibal is passionate about philanthropy and social good efforts that create meaningful change in disenfranchised communities.

His education includes an executive and entrepreneurial certification from Harvard University & Wharton School of Business. He most recently served as the Director of Engagement & Outreach for The Trust, powered by the National Football Players Association.

This effort provides transitioning NFL players with the support and resources needed to ensure their success outside the game of football. His leadership in this work reflects the dedication that Hannibal has for empowering professional athletes and his desire to see them thrive beyond their sports careers.

Hannibal has made an impact on the lives of several professional athletes through his work, personal influence, and mentorship. His extensive experience as an entrepreneur, public speaker, and philanthropist has groomed and qualified him for his role at Athletes Charitable.
