Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation marks the 10th anniversary of its Sports Matter Program by committing $2 million to a new grant initiative.  

Through their giveback program, a portion of Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) private brand sales directly supports this initiative, which has already provided over $100 million to aid 2 million young athletes. Vice President Rick Jordan emphasized the power of sports to shape futures and announced 20 grants of $10,000 each to Pittsburgh-based organizations, with another 10 grants planned for Boston.  

Throughout the year, more grants will be awarded to youth sports organizations nationwide. Partnerships with organizations like Every Kid Sports and Good Sports aim to cover registration fees and provide equipment to underserved communities. Additionally, partnerships with LISC and DonorsChoose will help build infrastructure and support educators/coaches, ensuring more kids stay in the game. With 850 stores across various brands, Dick’s reaffirms its commitment to fostering youth sports nationwide.
