For the 2023-24 NFL regular season, FedEx is once again proudly working with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) to make donations of $2,000 in the name of the winning quarterback and running back ($4,000 total) to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country.

Over the course of the entire season, select HBCUs will receive grants totaling more than $100,000 to support needs-based scholarships through the 2024-25 school year.
