The NFL Foundation, along with the Cowboys, Patriots, Raiders and Steelers, will together donate $200,000 to Banorte’s Fundación Banorte to support earthquake disaster relief efforts in Mexico City. Fundación Banorte will match the donations.

Funds will go toward rebuilding homes in and around Mexico City.

In addition, the Cowboys have committed $50,000 to the Salvation Army’s Mexico City relief efforts to assist with crisis intervention services for victims and first responders. The Salvation Army will use the money to provide water, food, shelter and emotional care to those immediately affected by the disaster and work with local officials to address long-term assistance for the most vulnerable and in need.

The Raiders host the Patriots at Estadio Azteca on Nov. 19.

  1. Once again the miami owner who only gives to charity for personal gain, visibility and his legacy keeps his hands in his pockets. Ross was hit with the largest allowable civil penalty for false charitable deductions and there was never a single word about here. If that were Blank, Jones, Mara or Kraft every NFL media outlet would have been all over it.

  2. This will somehow be spun by idiots who post here that the Cowboys, Patriots, Raiders and Steelers are all bad bad awful people for making this donation.

    Usually those fan bases troll each other (mostly Patriots getting it from the other three, except one Patriots troll who out does all others combined) but they are sort of stuck here.

    Really it was a good and nice thing by all four teams. Cant knock it.
