About Us

Fans Helping Fans began in 2004 as a close circle of Philadelphia Eagles Fans who, after learning of a friend’s impending battle with a serious illness, united in friendship and action with a single goal: simply, to help a friend in need by raising immediate funds for medical testing. The close circle widened, and even Fans who did not know our friend nonetheless contributed to the effort because, as we learned, we are all on the same team.

The idea of Fans Helping Fans grew from that experience. Our goal is to assist Fans in difficult financial circumstances because of illness, sudden unemployment, disasters or other emergencies. As Fans with tightly-knit loyalties, we are also able to lend emotional support during a difficult point in the lives of our fellow Fans.

We are here to make a difference, however big or small. Life as an Eagles Fan is about fierce loyalty to this team, this City and one another. We offer this help with no discrimination except as to need. While our passion for the Philadelphia Eagles is what originally united all of us, we learned that we are united by much more than that. What unites us is Fans. Helping… Fans.
