Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury pledged to donate $5,000 to Team Luke Hope for Minds for every Arizona win this season.

TLHFM is a non-profit organization that “supports Texas families with children who have suffered an acquired brain injury.”

With 11 wins already in the bag in 2021 and one more regular-season game to go on Sunday, Kingsbury is already up to $55,000.

An anonymous donor has also agreed to match Kingsbury, meaning a total of at least $110,000 has been donated to TLHFM.

Should Arizona pick up win No. 12 in its Week 18 regular-season finale against the Seattle Seahawks at State Farm Stadium, the Cardinals head coach would see his donation amount go up to $60,000.

And of course that would also mean the anonymous donor’s match would bring the grand total to $120,000.

The Team Luke foundation was created in 2017 by former Texas Tech tennis coach Tim Siegel after his son, Luke, went into cardiac arrest after suffering head and chest trauma due to a golf cart accident in 2015.

It then merged with Hope4Minds in 2018 to create what the organization is called today before Luke died in August 2021.

Kingsbury was an original board member of TLHFM and even hosted both Tim and Luke Siegel at his home back in March 2021.

“I’ve known Tim Seagle a long time. He was the head tennis coach there at Texas Tech,” Kingsbury told reporters Wednesday. “Tremendous person, coach and really love their family and what they’re about. They obviously had the tragedy with their son, Luke.

“He started to make a non-profit, try to turn a real tragedy into a real positive. He’s working on the non-profit, they’ve raised a bunch of money to help families that are in similar situations. So anything I can do to help those people, I’m just honored to be a part of it.”

The organization approved over half a million dollars in financial requests to qualifying families in 2021, according to a press release.

Donated money will go toward “therapies, equipment, home renovations and any other needs expressed by the families” TLHFM serves.
