Our Goal

Everyone should have the chance to be great, to excel in life and reach their highest potential. It can be achieved through the power of sports, which builds communities and unites people. At its very best, sports uplifts the human spirit. At ESPN, we're inspired by the many athletes, fans and communities that are using sports to make the world a
better place.

We concentrate our impact on five key areas: Access to Sports, Leadership Through Sports, Good Neighbor grants, Sustainability and The V Foundation.

Through our employee volunteerism, charitable giving and cause marketing programs, we aim to use the power of sports for
social good.
