Leveling the Playing Field gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of athletic involvement. Studies show that students who participate in athletics have higher grade point averages, attendance rates, standardized test scores, educational aspirations and healthier habits.


Through our sport equipment donation we are able to maximize the benefits of participating in sports by allowing athletic programs to utilize their sports equipment funds elsewhere within their organization. The LFP recipients allocate the funds saved by lowering registration fees, expanding their scholarship programs, enhancing their existing athletic programs, or developing new ones.


In just 2 years we have donated over $950,000 worth of sporting equipment to over 150 programs. Our success has been accelerated by the strong partnerships we have developed with equipment donors across the Mid-Atlantic.

Hi LPF followers! Happy 2016! I wanted to start with a quick look back at 2016 before we move forward. Since LPF's inception, we have donated over a million dollars worth of equipment. A little under half of that was in 2015 alone.

Hi LPF followers, This is my first blog as part of Leveling the Playing Field! I have had a super busy first few weeks here. Max and I are definitely getting used to working together. It’s similar to having a college roommate since its just two guys here (and Moe)....
