About The Pittsburgh Steelers: From the founding of the Steelers in 1933, giving back to the community has always been a priority.  Our late founder, Art Rooney Sr., recognized the importance of supporting the community that supports the team and passed that legacy on to his family – son, Dan, Steelers chairman and in turn to his son, Art Rooney II, Steelers president.  In addition to the Rooneys, Steelers players, coaches and front office staff devote numerous hours helping those less fortunate through non-profit and community groups. It’s our way of giving back to the community that has supported the organization for more than 85 years!
