Saving Sports. Surpassing Goals.

In 2019, The DICK'S Foundation's Sports Matter Program aimed to help one million kids participate in sports by 2024. We’re proud that it only took us three years to surpass this goal. Like the athletes we support who set new goals when they break old ones, we doubled down. We are pleased to announce that we've now met that goal and helped over two million kids!

Changing the Game

“ESYA would like to thank you for your generous donation. With the difficulties that have come with the recent pandemic, we have had to make big changes in the way that we operate. Without your support we would not be able to continue to prepare our youth for their future. Myself and my co-director were literally brought to tears and have had the greatest feeling of relief that we can continue to help the kids and families that so deserve it.” - Warner Park Cardinals Youth Football Inc. $10,000 grant recipient (Wisconsin)
