The Challenge: 

Many athletes work hard to give back and make a difference in their communities. Athletes typically start their own charitable foundations, but it can often be hard to manage all the time, energy and resources that starting a nonprofit organization entails.

From staying compliant with federal, state and local tax regulations, ensuring there are enough resources and staff to promote and support foundation initiatives, and creating strategic plans for community impact, it is a large commitment of time and resources.

The Solution:

Authentic and sustainable partnerships with established nonprofit organizations can raise valuable awareness for a professional athlete’s brand as well as open additional opportunities for community relationships and brand opportunities off the field.

Professional athletes need to consistently be building their brands outside of sport, and philanthropy is a great way to do that.

People like to see athletes giving back in the community, and consistently support brands that have a social conscience. Professional athletes have a unique reach and network that many nonprofits could use to raise awareness for their programming and initiatives.

By partnering with a nonprofit organization, athletes can support the community through their ever expanding social media presence, appearances at events or programming opportunities and their brand personality.

“Anything you are passionate about has a social good aspect. You just have to look for it!”
