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.
Since 2009, Beyond Sport has supported 421 projects operating in over 100 countries, providing $7.4 million in direct grants with a range of in-depth capacity building.
