Equipment Donation Opportunity

All interested programs and schools must submit an application in order to be considered for an equipment donation. Organizations and schools that are accepted into our Portfolio will be supported by Good Sports to meet their top equipment needs over the course of a five-year partnership. This partnership is designed to help programs build a sustainability plan that continues beyond Good Sports’ five-year commitment.  This deeper connection to organizations, and commitment to getting them the most-needed equipment, will result in more predictable and impactful donations and allow Good Sports to measure and share that impact more effectively. 

Our application window is now open through June 2! Please read below for more information on how to apply. Organizations that submit in May can expect to receive approval status by the beginning of July.

Our second and final live virtual information session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 28 at 1:00pm eastern time. For more details and to register, click HERE. Attendance is not mandatory to be considered for the portfolio. To view a recording of our first virtual information session, click below.
