During the Sunday, December 3 CBS Sports broadcast, Cowher discussed his passions beyond the game and his support for Stand Together Foundation:

“My cause is Stand Together Foundation. It’s a nonprofit that’s committed to breaking the cycles of poverty and bridging divides across the country. They believe in people and empowering them to realize their full potential. Stand Together Foundation is partnering with more than three hundred local nonprofits including Café Momentum, a restaurant in Pittsburgh run almost entirely by justice-impacted youth. I hope the Steelers fans will check them out.”
