PeyBack Foundation Programs & Events

The PeyBack Foundation implements a variety of programs that help youth grow and become leaders in their communities. These are a snapshot of avenues the PeyBack Foundation is involved in.

Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent
Peyton Manning continues to maintain a strong relationship with Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent in Indianapolis, IN. Founded on core values that support comprehensive family-centered care, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent provides a full range of pediatric services, state-of-the-art facilities and friendly atmosphere for patients ranging from newborns to teens.

“In the NFL, the name on the back of the jersey is emblematic of a player’s commitment to contribute any way he can to the success of that team. For me, having the name on the front of this building carries with it much the same: a weighty responsibility to contribute to the many victories ahead at St. Vincent.”

University of Tennessee Scholarship Program
Awarded annually since 1998, the Peyton Manning Scholarship is presented to four first-year students participating in the University of Tennessee Honors Program. The Peyton Manning Scholarship covers the costs of tuition, room, and board and is granted based on academic achievement, leadership and community service.

“It’s hard to believe we have 53 Manning Scholarship recipients,” Manning said. “Ashley and I have been really fortunate and made a gift to UT eight years ago to up the scholarships to four a year. We’re proud of all our recipients, they’re all Haslam Scholars and all great Tennessee Volunteers. We hope to continue it forever.”

Manning Passing Academy
Owned and operated by Archie, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli Manning, The Manning Passing Academy has been helping high school athletes from across the country fully realize their potential on and off the football field for more than 20 years.
Scholastic Book Club
Peyton Manning is proud to partner with Scholastic Books in their efforts to promote reading and learning to children throughout the world. A relationship with Scholastic was forged following the 2009 publication by Scholastic of Family Huddle; a children’s book that Peyton co-wrote with his father, Archie, and brother, Eli.
Ticket Incentive Program
The PeyBack Foundation provides disadvantaged children in Colorado, Indiana, and Tennessee the opportunity to attend Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, and Tennessee Volunteers home football games throughout the season as part of the Foundation’s Ticket Incentive Program. The Foundation has purchased a ticket block to each home game to allow as many kids as possible to see their favorite teams play.
The PeyBack Foundation is no longer accepting unsolicited grant applications. The Foundation will continue to support community programs and will be in contact should your organization be awarded a grant or to touch base with you for more information on how your organization can be best supported. 2022 PeyBack Foundation grants have been distributed.
