Outback Bowl Charitable Giving Initiative

In additional to being an economic engine for the region and contributing over $6 million each year to universities, for a total of $158 million over the history of the game, the Outback Bowl began a 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 $2.5 million to 135+ deserving charities and it is committed to contributing at least another $500,000 annually each of the next four years.

In 2020 the Outback Bowl was recognized as a One Tampa Bay Honoree for Corporate Philanthropy by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
