Registered in both the UK and the USA, the Foundation invests in inspirational people and projects that use sport to create and drive positive social change in some of the most disadvantaged and excluded populations in the world.
Projects supported by the Foundation share four common themes:
- They use sport to address global issues such as conflict resolution, social inclusion, health and education. This has included football projects uniting tribes in war-torn Sierra Leone, sport based HIV education programmes in Lesotho and providing safe spaces for youth to play in gang stricken areas of Chicago.
- They have strong foundations and ideas for the future but have untapped potential that will allow them to expand and benefit more people.
- They have elements of best practice that other projects can learn from, follow and adapt for their own use.
- They have powerful and inspiring leadership.
Through a unique partnership, Beyond Sport Ltd. covers all overheads for the Foundation. This allows 100% of all individual donations to the Foundation to go directly to on-the-ground work, maximizing the positive impact on struggling communities around the world.
