equip kids for success.
Help us continue putting sports equipment in the hands of those less fortunate by donating your used sports equipment.
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.
“The donation has been very successful! The sport activities are the catch and the main motivator for young kids to do their academic work.”

“With your donation, we are able to offer low cost flag football this season for the first time.”
