Good Sports Equipment Initiative
Sports Equipment Donations to Georgia Organizations
and Schools Serving Low-Income Children
and Schools Serving Low-Income Children
Foundation / Corporation
The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation - Good Sports
In-kind donations of sports equipment to Georgia community organizations and schools that serve low-income children. These donations are intended to increase participation among school-age children in fitness and recreation programs by providing them with increased access to sports equipment.
Please note that the equipment donations are intended to broaden participation in physical activity, not to support top athletes.
This initiative has a specific focus. It is designed for situations where the equipment donation promises to increase participation in some type of physical activity. This initiative is open to ideas related to most any type of physical activity. Preference will be given to opportunities where equipment donations will lead to increased levels of participation over time, not just for one event or one season.
The equipment donation initiative is open to any organization in Georgia.
Good Sports does ask that all applicants meet each of the following criteria:
- Your organization directly serves youth between the ages of 3-18 years old
- Your organization serves youth in an economically disadvantaged area
- Your organization operates an organized sport, recreational activity, or fitness program that offers consistent and structured opportunity for play to large groups of children
Important Information for Schools:
Schools must apply as a whole; applications for individual programs or teams within the school will not be considered.
Good Sports is not able to donate to the following:
- Short-term events such as sports camps and tournaments
- Individual athletes
All interested programs must submit an application in order to be considered for an equipment donation.
Important Information for School Applicants:
- If your school has a physical education program, be sure to include demographic information for the entire student population of the school – not just the students on the school’s athletic teams.
- In terms of budget information, you may simply report the revenue and expenses which relate directly to your overall athletic/physical education department. You do not need to report budget numbers for the entire school.
All approved organizations will:
- Gain access to the Good Sports catalog of available inventory, which displays the equipment, apparel, and footwear that Good Sports has available at the current time.
- Be able to use up to six total donation requests over a two-year period, with a maximum of three donation requests per year.
You will be required to sign a release form and pay a shipping and handling fee with each donation. This will always equal 10% of the total retail value of the items; for example, if the total value of your items equals $2,000, you will be asked to provide $200, etc.
It is recommended that you print a hard copy of your application for your own records.
