What is Sports Matter?

Sports Matter is an initiative to raise awareness and address the growing issue of underfunded youth athletics nationwide. It is the signature program of The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation.

Sports Matter has two parts: Through a partnership with DonorsChoose.org, Sports Matter enables youth sports teams to raise half of the funds they need and earn a matching grant from The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation. In addition, Sports Matter includes DICK'S Sporting Goods' Sponsorship & Donations program.

With your help, we can help more kids play sports, have fun and learn important life skills.

How many hours per week can I expect to spend on a fundraising campaign like this?

While the exact amount of time depends entirely on what your goal is and how much help you have, it's very important to recognize that crowdfunding is typically a time-intensive endeavor.

A successful campaign requires multiple rounds of outreach, keeping track of who has been contacted, holding helpers accountable to their tasks, following up on promises of support, and continually brainstorming new ways to bring supporters on board.

The good news is that engaging supporters for this campaign is also building a network of supporters for the future, so the time you spend now is also an investment.

What is the process if I want to request more than $2, 000 in equipment?

DonorsChoose.org works on a point system that encourages first time teachers to select a lower dollar amount for their first project. You can read more about this point system on their website. We understand that sometimes your students may need more than $2, 000 in equipment so we've teamed up with DonorsChoose.org to make an exception for Sports Matter teams.

Contact the DonorsChoose.org team at to request one additional point be added to your account. Let them know that you would like to submit a classroom project (not a class trip project) for the Sports Matter campaign for more than $2, 000.

What is the process if I want to request less than or equal to $1, 200 in non-equipment items (such as transportation, registration fees, facility rental or sports camps)?

Submit a class trip project (not a classroom project) to be eligible for the Sports Matter matching donation.

Make sure you have a price quote from the vendor or organization that will receive the funds prior to submitting your project.
