WHO WE ARE
SPORTS CHANGE LIVES
We believe that sports change lives. In addition to physical and mental health benefits, sports have the power to change our perspectives, our character, and our communities for the better. This belief has guided DICK’S Sporting Goods and The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation since the beginning – but not everyone has the same access to play. Through grants and other support, The DICK’S Foundation helps under-resourced 501c3 organizations, schools, and community teams across all 50 states provide opportunities for youth 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.
