Gronk Nation Youth Foundation

Our Story
The Gronkowski family loves to get hyped, lift weights, and play football on Sundays, but they also love to give back to the community. They have been giving back to the community ever since they started playing sports, and now they are taking it to the next level. The Gronkowski brothers came together and decided to create their own foundation, Gronk Nation Youth Foundation.  The Gronk Nation Youth Foundation’s fiscal sponsor is Innovative Charitable Initiatives, Inc., (ICI) a 501 C 3 tax exempt charitable organization. A copy of ICI’s latest annual report may be obtained upon request by writing to Innovative Charitable Initiatives, Inc., 272 Broadway, Albany, NY 12204 or from the New York State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau, 120 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, New York 10271.  Financial information is also available on the MA AGO Public Charities Division website (  The Gronk Nation Youth Foundation exists to host events and creative concepts that generate funds for the benefit of youth charities.
