Outback Bowl Charitable Giving Initiative

In additional to contributing millions of dollars each year to universities, now at $149 million over the history of the game, the Outback Bowl began a specific Charitable Giving Initiative in 2016 to also provide funds each year to non-profit organizations either based, or with a large presence in, the Tampa Bay area. Since beginning this program just a few years ago the Outback Bowl has already donated over $1.5 million to 100+ deserving charities, including $500,000 in 2019 alone. And it is committed to contributing at least $500,000 annually in future years.
