Jets in the Community
MetLife has been a part of the New York area for more than 148 years and has a long commitment to community involvement.  MetLife Stadium – and the MetLife Bowl - create new opportunities to further that effort.  As in recent years, MetLife Foundation will make a donation to local charities. The winning team's charity will get $30,000 and the other team's charity will get $20,000, for a total donation of $50,000. Both the Giants and the Jets have a commitment to helping kids exercise and be healthy, so they have partnered with charities that help to create playgrounds, parks and other healthy play spaces.

For the Jets, that's the Trust for Public Land and for the Giants, that's KaBoom!

MetLife Foundation has been actively involved with both organizations over the years, so it's a perfect fit for MetLife Foundation to provide donations in honor of the two teams that play in the MetLife Bowl.
