A Message from the Haslams
While our efforts to improve our community in 2016 are well underway, we are proud to share with you the 2015 Cleveland Browns Community Impact Report. We are thankful for your support as you play a pivotal role in our collective mission to provide the high-quality education and development opportunities that every child needs and deserves.
Through the Cleveland Browns Foundation, we continue to enhance our current partnerships while strategically selecting new programs that align with our goals. Our strengthened collaboration with Cleveland Metropolitan School District features a new attendance campaign — "Get 2 School. You Can Make It!" — aimed at removing barriers for students who are chronically absent to help ensure that they are prepared to succeed in and outside of the classroom.
With a focus on youth football and volunteerism, Community Relations believes in the skills and lessons everyone can learn from sport participation and selflessness. We are emphasizing and creating optimal youth football opportunities in Cleveland while encouraging fans to make a difference through the Browns First and Ten signature program. One of our proudest accomplishments this past year was working with partners on the Dwayne Browder Field refurbishment project to provide a best-in-class inner city football field for the players, the coaches and inspirational volunteers who lead our youth and the surrounding community.
Honoring the rich history and traditions of our past players, we continued to strengthen the relationship between our fans and the Browns organization by further connecting our alumni to the community.
Our family also pledged $10 million to Breakthrough Schools, the highest-ranked network of public charter schools in Cleveland. Through our family's initiatives and those of the Browns, we want to continue to be champions of the child, the future of our community.
We greatly appreciate the critical support of our fans and partners of Northeast Ohio as we strive to improve youth development and education. We encourage you to read the following report, which further details our commitment to making a difference in our shared community. Thank you for your continued support and passion for the team!
