To continue their support of outstanding champions in the Delaware Valley, Santander Bank and the Philadelphia Eagles have teamed up this season to launch the inaugural ‘Santander Community Quarterback’ program. Throughout the 2017 season, the Eagles and Santander will honor exceptional individuals who exemplify leadership, dedication and a commitment to improving the communities where they live.

Ten deserving recipients from the Greater Philadelphia area will be selected by a panel of judges. All winners will receive $1,000 to donate to the local nonprofit organization of their choice and an exclusive experience at an Eagles home game during the 2017 season. At the end of the season, fans will have the opportunity to vote for one of three finalists to be named the Top Community Quarterback. The winner will receive an additional $4,000 to donate to a local nonprofit of his or her choice.

“With the tremendous amount of support our fans show for the Eagles year-round, this is our way of recognizing the incredible community work of individuals in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas,” said Ari Roitman, Eagles senior vice president of business. “We are pleased to partner with a global ambassador like Santander who believes in honoring social good will right here in Philadelphia. We encourage everyone to identify your Community Quarterback and nominate him or her for this prestigious honor in 2017.”

Remarkable individuals can be nominated for their work in the region by visiting here. Each candidate will be evaluated on the following criteria: a strong and dedicated commitment to the community, and an altruistic act that significantly impacted those in the community. Nominations can be submitted now through November 27, 2017. Winners will be announced on a rolling basis over the course of the season. Fans can vote for the Top Community Quarterback from December 6 through 15.

“We are continually impressed by the incredible contributions of community champions in the Greater Philadelphia area and are thrilled to offer this program as a way to express our gratitude to these individuals,” said Angela Moultrie, Santander’s Region President for the Pennsylvania/New Jersey Central regions. “Santander has long been committed to supporting meaningful causes in the community and is honored to partner with the Philadelphia Eagles to provide recognition and once-in-a-lifetime experiences as a thank you to inspiring Community Quarterbacks.”

In addition to the charitable contribution that will be donated on behalf of the ‘Santander Community Quarterback’ program, each recipient will be granted a VIP Eagles game day experience, which will include two club tickets, and the priceless opportunity to watch a designated game in the Santander Field Club, located on the sideline at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles and Santander are committed to recognizing outstanding individuals and deeply respect the people who make the Greater Philadelphia region a better place. For more information on the ‘Santander Community Quarterback’ program, please visit: www.santanderbank.com/CommunityQB.
