Kliff Kingsbury Partnership
Coach Kingsbury’s Generosity Grows with each Cardinals Win
$110,000 raised to support children after brain injury
LUBBOCK, Texas – Arizona Cardinals Head Coach, Kliff Kingsbury, pledged to donate $5,000
to Team Luke Hope for Minds (TLHFM) for every Cardinal win this football season. At an 11-5
record, with the last game in the regular season set for this Sun., Jan. 9, Kingsbury’s
contributions total $55,000. An anonymous donor has agreed to match these funds meaning
TLHFM will receive at least a combined gift of $110,000.
“I just want to say how honored and proud I am to support TLHFM, an incredible organization
that helps children after brain injuries and their families continue to move forward,” Kingsbury
shared in a video testimonial. “To be a small part of this, continue to try and get wins, continue
to try and raise money for an incredible cause, I’m just really, really honored to be a part of it.”
TLHFM Executive Director, and close friend to Kingsbury, Tim Siegel, is overwhelmed by the
impact this gift will make on the families his organization serves.
“Kliff is first, a good friend. He has always cared for, and asked about Luke,” Siegel said. “ What
he has done means the world to TLHFM and even more to the families all over the country who
Siegel and Kingsbury’s friendship goes back 23 years to Texas Tech where Kingsbury played
quarterback and Siegel coached tennis. The two have remained close friends. Kingsbury even
hosted Siegel and his son Luke at his home in March 2021, five months prior to Luke’s death.
“Luke was an inspiration in my life, his fight, the way he continued to fight day in and day out
and watching his family and what they went through, it really had an impact on me and still does
to this day,” Kingsbury said.
Kingsbury has been an integral part of the TLHFM community since its inception. He served as
an original board member, sponsored a professional tennis tournament, and he continues to
donate and spread awareness for the organization.
“The money donated will allow us to pay for therapies, equipment, home renovations and any
other needs expressed by the families we serve,” said TLHFM director of family services Ronda
Johnson. “This gift will help a lot of people in need.”
In 2021, TLHFM approved $508,000 in financial requests to qualifying families.
