Grassroot Soccer fundraising games are low-burden, player-driven events that unite soccer teams around a common cause: equipping young people with the life-saving information, services, and mentorship they need to live healthier lives. Bringing a fundraising game to your university, club, or high school is simple. Teams designate a regular season or exhibition game as a fundraising game, work with Grassroot Soccer to launch a fun, peer-to-peer awareness and fundraising campaign, and showcase their effort on game day!
Players find motivation and camaraderie in the opportunity to play for an important cause.
The coaching staff brings new depth to the game and inspires the team with expectations that go beyond wins and losses.
By embracing soccer for social good, the team has an opportunity to connect with the local and national soccer community in a meaningful way.
Opportunity for a pre-season trip to Africa to play against top sides and create life-changing experiences.
Players experience the power of soccer beyond the touchlines and learn about their broader role as athletes in the global community.
Players leverage their position to spread awareness and change the odds for their peers facing the highest health burdens around the world; every $25 they raise provides critical health and life skills programming for one young person.
Many players choose to join the more than 200 college graduates who have spent a life-changing year working with Grassroot Soccer in Africa.

“It’s quite possibly the most direct charity foundation in the world that involves soccer, as the world’s game, and does a great job to raise awareness about many health and gender issues facing many less fortunate people around the world…it’s a privilege to be involved with such a great cause.”
