Sports Philanthropy World Extends
Early Bird to October 11, 2020
Sports Philanthropy World is growing each day. At press time, we already have 170 participants representing 25 states and 17 countries. Keep checking the ticker on our Sports Philanthropy World page for the latest numbers. We continue to add outstanding speakers to a lineup which already includes Richard Lapchick, David Meltzer and Leigh Steinberg. Check this space next week for some more exciting announcements. The updated lineup of speakers and sessions will be released on October 5, 2020. Our programming tracks and workshops are another way to engage with our audience and our interactive platform is crucial to letting you connect with people from across the world.
In case you missed our Sports Philanthropy Town Hall on Racism, Tolerance and Reform on July 1st, you can now watch the videos! Please make sure to take our survey after you watch the videos!!
REPORT ON STATEMENTS ABOUT RACISM
In addition to the Town Hall meeting, we also released our comprehensive report which compiles all of the statements teams, leagues and sports organizations made about their efforts to condemn racism and their actions to combat racism.
Our goal is to spotlight those commitments, as well as find a way to track how well these organizations were able to follow through on their promises. We hope all of you will support and encourage organizations in your community to live up to the commitments.
We encourage you to give generously to allow us to work to make meaningful change and to support the many organizations that are doing terrific work in this space. Please click below to make your donation
