WHO WE ARE
Sports Make People Better
A simple statement, but one that is often overlooked. Sports build character, increase confidence, motivate kids to stay in school and aim for higher education; teaching life lessons that extend well beyond the playing field. Through grants and other support we’ve helped 501c3 organizations, schools, and community teams across all 50 states provide opportunities for youth to play sports. But not everyone has the same access to play sports.
Established in 2011, The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with a mission to inspire and enable sports participation. It was created by DICK’S Sporting Goods, Inc. as a private corporate foundation to support DICK’S charitable and philanthropic activities.
