The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation has awarded a Sports Matter Grant to 501(c)3 Got Her Back. The Sports Matter Grant changes lives through the power of sports by breaking down access barriers for youth athletes. By supporting mental and physical health through sports, DICK’S Sporting Goods fosters success in school and paths to bright futures. Grant funds will be used by Got Her Back to create opportunities for girls in football, including skill development camps and tournaments.
The Sports Matter Grant from DICK’S Sporting Goods will greatly impact growth opportunities for girls in football. Got Her Back will be enabled to celebrate, educate and empower more female athletes. We are so excited to partner with DICK’S Sporting Goods on our shared mission to create change through sports.
