The College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which serves as the charitable arm of the College Football Playoff. The CFP Foundation was formed in 2013 with the introduction of the new playoff system to make a significant difference through the platform of college football.
The purpose of the CFP Foundation lies in supporting early childhood through secondary education across the country. Within education, the CFP Foundation’s primary focus is teachers, expressed through the Extra Yard for Teachers (EYFT) platform. The mission of Extra Yard for Teachers is to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers. The CFP Foundation initiates programs and events that further the EYFT mission and align with the four program pillars: recognition, resources, recruitment and professional development.
Numerous key partnerships have been formed around EYFT initiatives with organizations around the country. The CFP Foundation relies on these partnerships to expand impact, execute its initiatives, and support positive educational outcomes.
