Congratulations to Our Founder

The Israel Idonije Foundation would like to congratulate our Founder, Israel Idonije who has recently signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions! A personal letter from Israel Idonije to his fans and foundation supporters:

Good Morning,

It is official, I have joined the Detroit Lions.

The past 10 seasons in Chicago have been an incredible experience. It seems like it was just yesterday that at 21 years old I arrived in the big city of Chicago to start my NFL career. Thank you for embracing me while I grew and developed personally and professionally.

I truly appreciate all the support the Israel Idonije Foundation has received.

The Israel Idonije Foundation will always be headquartered in Chicago, with its mission and focus remaining the same. TeamIIF's leadership will continue the great work of serving in the community and building on all of the successes it has had since it began in 2007. I will still be very much a part of its efforts, and we look forward to continued growth as we carry out our mission of serving communities in Chicago, Winnipeg and West Africa.

Although Chicago will always be home, I am extremely excited about the opportunity to be part of the Detroit Lions organization and to begin exploring this new chapter.

Together We Succeed
