About the Light Foundation: The Light Foundation was established by New England Patriot Matt Light and his father William Light. The Foundation promotes community responsibility and hard work, which are values that serve Matt well and are emphasized by his family. As an NFL player, Matt realizes he is in a position to make a great impact on the lives of those less fortunate in his community. To help implement this system of giving back, the Foundation has been established to accomplish the following:
  • Support and encourage high school students in communities where Matt Light has played professional football to continue their education beyond high school by offering financial assistance to qualified applicants.
  • Support student athlete participation by providing financial support to youth athletic programs, including volunteer support, organizing and coordinating training programs for student-athletes and coaches, as well as creating opportunities to participate in athletic programs where no such programs exist.
  • Provide funding to qualifying 501(C) (3) organizations that help further educational and athletic endeavors or social welfare for children.
