Why Equipment Donations

The cost of play is a major barrier to access and it is keeping children in high-need communities on the sidelines.

Why it Matters

We know the benefits of sports can be life-changing. Children who play do better mentally, academically, socially and physically. Cost cannot continue to be a barrier for these essential growth opportunities.

Why Brands Choose Us

Consumers want to see brands giving back, and to sports fans, Good Sports’ mission is clear and powerful.

We have an outstanding reputation, with a top four-star Charity Navigator rating and longstanding partnerships with numerous Fortune 500 companies, professional sports entities, and sporting goods manufacturers.

We are an extension of your community and marketing team, with ample experience executing a variety of high-profile activations and reporting on the equipment’s impact.

How it Works

More funding means more kids are playing. Good Sports customizes brand partnerships to achieve your goals and provide equipment in communities you care about. 
Here are a few popular models:


Not only will we donate equipment to organizations in your key markets, but our team will execute a Play Celebration event to present equipment to a youth organization and some very excited kids.
