Good Sports was an amazing resource for our son’s Mitzvah. They made it completely turnkey and helped our fundraising go even farther than if we had done all the work ourselves. My son loved tracking his fundraising and in the end raised well over his goal. He knows that he was able to make a huge, positive impact on the lives of hundreds of kids.Kirsten Hano
I’m happy me and my friends helped kids so now they can play sports.Mathias O.

Donations will be used to support Good Sports’ equipment grant program. Good Sports equipment grants are awarded to youth sport and fitness organizations that provide athletic opportunities to disadvantaged youth.
After your fundraiser has concluded if you hit one of our bronze, silver or gold medal fundraising goals, we will contact you to confirm your mailing address. We will then send the reward to the address you provide for you to enjoy!
Any organization that meets our basic requirements (learn more here) is eligible to apply for a Good Sports equipment grant. All applications are reviewed by Good Sports staff and are evaluated based on level of need and the impact the organization has on youth in the community.
Good Sports has donated equipment for more than 22 different sports, from basketball to yoga to volleyball! We work with multiple vendors and manufacturers across the equipment, apparel and footwear spectrum, so we have access to anything you would typically find in a sporting goods store, plus a whole lot more!
Good Sports accepts applications from anywhere in the United States.
While we do accept equipment donations from certificated equipment manufacturers, we do not accept new or used sports equipment from individual donors due to logistical challenges in distributing matching equipment to organizations of different sizes. Monetary donations allow us to better match our grantees with equipment they have requested.
For parties that raise over $1,000 we will be happy to match you directly with an organization that meets our eligibility requirements that your donation will help benefit. Due to limited capacity, we are otherwise unfortunately unable to provide you with a specific organization.
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee requests to support specific sports. We review application on a rolling basis so it is not possible for us to predict what types of organizations will apply for equipment grants at any given time.
Yes. Good Sports is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit organization that relies on the generous support of foundations, corporations, individual donations, and events. All contributions to Good Sports are tax-deductible to the extent that is allowed by law.
