The Beyond Sport Foundation is a UK registered charity and US 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that celebrates, supports and raises awareness and funding for organizations using sport to help make the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality.
We partner with organizations that purposefully use physical activity to do something greater. Our work is aligned with the SDGs (also known as the Global Goals), a 15-year roadmap adopted by world leaders in 2015 to stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity.
The Foundation is committed to elevating innovative solutions that leverage sport to address the key societal issues that will put us all on the path to peace, prosperity and a healthier planet. Alongside expert partners, we support inspirational people and projects that are using sport to make sustainable and powerful impact on communities around the world.
The Beyond Sport Foundation goes beyond traditional grant-giving models by not just funding projects, but also providing capacity-building tools to help organizations grow and improve.
For more than a decade, we have supported nearly 500 organizations worldwide, providing $4.7M in grant funding, and distributing $9.5M in long-term strategic support through the Beyond Sport Global Awards and other key initiatives.
Learn more about our current programs, including: the renowned Beyond Sport Global Awards, the Sport for Good Response Fund - a collaborative initiative created in May 2020 to support organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic and our 2020 Collective Impact Awards addressing Gender Equality and Reducing Racial Inequalities.
