One of The Heisman Trophy Trust goals is to contribute to the well-being and development of amateur athletes and the underserved population in the United States. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Trust's endeavors are dedicated to charitable purposes. In its history, the Trust has made donations and/or commitments of excess of $4.5 million to various organizations. The hope, through these charitable endeavors, is for The Heisman Trophy to symbolize the fostering of a sense of community responsibility and service to our youth, especially those disadvantaged or afflicted. Below is a listing of many of the charities that have received donations from the Heisman Trophy Trust since our inception after September 11, 2001.
