Thank you for your interest in applying for a Good Sports equipment grant!

As a standard process, we ask that all interested programs submit an application in order to determine the level of need present within their particular organization.

We do ask that all applicants meet the following criteria:

  • You directly serve youth between the ages of 3-18 years old
  • You serve youth in an economically disadvantaged area
  • You are located in North America (U.S. and Canada)
  • You operate an organized sport, recreational activity, or fitness program that offers consistent and structured opportunity for play to large groups of children

Additionally, Good Sports is not able to donate to the following:

  • Short-term events such as sports camps and tournaments
  • Individual athletes

Applications must be filled out as accurately and comprehensively as possible – incomplete applications will not be considered. While not encouraged, estimates on demographics and budgetary information may be used when exact data is not available.

All approved organizations will receive an email containing information on our donation policies and restrictions, as well as instructions on how to set up your online account, which will allow you to view a real-time display of the equipment, apparel and footwear that we currently have available.

Please note the following change in our process for 2015:

  • Organizations who are approved will have access to equipment, apparel and footwear inventory for a two (2) year period
  • During that period, organizations can make up to six (6) separate donation requests as long as need is well documented those donations will be granted
  • There will be no need to resubmit a full application again during that 2 year period
