The SG Foundation
The Sporting Generosity Foundation (the "Foundation") was created to help individuals and organizations raise money for their own specific causes without having to go through the administrative burden of managing their own personal foundation. The Foundation is unique in that it does not have one defined mission, rather it adapts to the missions of our members. Each member of our foundation has his or her own respective operating charter which is managed as its own unique foundation. The Foundation also has a general account that accepts non-designated money which is then distributed as grants to other charitable organziations in need.
The Foundation will soon be announcing its Board of Directors. The directors are experts in the fields of philanthropy, law, finance, accounting, event management, marketing, public relations, and professional athletics.
