A flagship program for the NBRPA’s Legends Care philanthropic arm, the Dave DeBusschere NBRPA Scholarship Fund was established in 1992. Dedicated to providing opportunities for higher learning, this program awards college scholarship dollars to NBRPA Members, their children and their grand children to help meet the rising costs of higher education. Through the Dave DeBusschere Scholarship Fund, the NBRPA has donated more than $1 million in scholarship money to former players and their children.
