Helping To Keep Kids In The Game Since 2011

Our Success

In evaluating our program, we found the bottom line benefit that LPF brings to youth sports organizations is allowing them to redirect the funds they had allocated for the purchase of equipment and put them to good use in other ways.  In many cases, our donations have allowed them to lower registration fees, which enables many more youngsters to participate.

 These programs maximize the value of LPF’s support in a myriad of ways.  Some use it to offer additional after-school transportation for kids who otherwise might not be able to find their way to an afternoon activity.  Others are able to purchase snacks for the youngsters, helping them to have the energy to make the most of their experience.  And a number of them use it to hire and train more staff in order to run additional programs and provide more personalized coaching and supervision.

Over 75% of our beneficiaries report that they have been able to allot funds saved towards other aspects of their program. 90% of our beneficiaries report that they have been able to expand the availability of their program as a result of our donations.

Note From The Founder

During my time working as an equipment manager with the Syracuse University football team, along with my summers spent with the Washington Redskins & Montgomery County Recreation, I observed a multitude of sporting equipment going to waste. This is a real shame given the lack of equipment in various underprivileged communities across the world. I started this organization to make sure that there is a process in place to funnel this equipment to children that desperately need it.

Sports were always an extremely important part of my life growing up. The prospect of participating in any sport that I desired was a given. All I needed to do was go to the local Sports Authority and purchase the equipment I needed. For a growing population of children across the country, that is certainly not the case. This fact is what motivates me every day.

I am passionate about giving children the opportunity to enjoy athletic participation because it was so important for me. I am committed to providing kids with the athletic equipment they need to experience the joy and benefits of playing sports. With our network of generous donors we are excited to continue growing and ensuring that every kid has the opportunity to participate in youth sports.
