The College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which serves as the community investment arm of the College Football Playoff.

The CFP Foundation was formed in 2013 with the introduction of the new playoff system to make a significant difference through the platform of college football.

The purpose of the CFP Foundation lies in supporting PK-12 education across the country. The CFP Foundation’s primary platform, Extra Yard for Teachers, is dedicated to elevating the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers in four focus areas: resources, recognition, professional development, recruitment and retention.

The CFP Foundation utilizes multiple partnerships to execute its initiatives and support positive educational outcomes. Click here to learn more about those partnerships.
