celebrating our community

Buccaneers players, coaches and staff are committed to inspiring youth, uplifting our neighbors and driving social change by celebrating a wide variety of causes and initiatives that strengthen the community.

Celebrating Our Community

My Cause, My Cleats

My Cause, My Cleats

Every season, Buccaneers players and staff participate in the My Cause, My Cleats campaign, a league-wide initiative that offers players the opportunity to promote charitable causes that are important to them through creative cleat designs. Many of the special edition cleats are then donated through NFL Auction, where 100% of the proceeds go to players' charitable causes.

Treasure Chests 5k + Fun Run, Powered by Jabil

The Buccaneers host the Treasure Chests 5K + Fun Run, powered by Jabil, to support breast cancer research and patient services for the Tampa Bay community. The annual race, traditionally hosted around the grounds of Raymond James Stadium and the AdventHealth Training Center, provides a one-of-a-kind setting for thousands of participants to cross the finish line and support a great cause. The upbeat event celebrates breast cancer survivors and has contributed more than $300,000 to beneficiary organizations including AdventHealth, Florida Cancer Specialists, Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation and the American Cancer Society.

Turkey Time with the O-Line Supported by Publix

Turkey Time with the O-Line Supported by Publix

For 14 years and counting, the Buccaneers' entire offensive line and Publix Super Markets have teamed up to provide full Thanksgiving meals for those less fortunate through "Turkey Time with the O-Line Supported by Publix." The Bucs' longest-running player-led holiday tradition, the food distribution event at the AdventHealth Training Center is made possible by donations from the team's offensive line and Publix. The effort is strengthened through the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation Social Justice Fund, which presents a matching grant to Feeding Tampa Bay to provide even more meals to families in the region. Launched in 2007 as a way for the Buccaneers offensive line to make a major impact in the Tampa Bay community during the holidays, the annual effort has provided over 10,500 underserved families with meals for Thanksgiving.

Bucs Community Ticket Program

Bucs Community Ticket Program

Each home game, the Buccaneers host select groups of fans from nonprofit organizations and youth groups as part of our Community Ticket Program. Groups are selected by our players, head coach and GM, highlighting causes especially close to their hearts. This program provides more fans throughout the Tampa Bay community who might not otherwise receive this experience with an opportunity to enjoy a special gameday at Raymond James Stadium.

Special Olympics Florida

Special Olympics Florida

The Buccaneers are proud to support Special Olympics Florida through unique interactions and events every year. Players, coaches and staff create a welcoming, inclusive environment for local athletes with intellectual disabilities and provide the opportunity to participate in football and fitness drills that help the athletes train, demonstrate courage and experience joy alongside their favorite Buccaneers.

Cut for a Cure

Cut for a Cure

The Buccaneers support the fight against childhood cancer through the annual "Cut for a Cure" campaign to benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Every year, dozens of Buccaneers players and staff have their heads and facial hair shaved or dyed orange to raise funds and awareness to eliminate childhood cancer. Through this annual event, the Buccaneers have raised more than $400,000 to support the charity, which is dedicated to funding research for less toxic, more targeted treatments to fight the deadly disease.
