Fueling More Positive Change in Communities Through the Athletes for Good Fund
Grants help athletes do more good in their communities.
Over the last year we’ve watched as many athletes have put their own dreams on hold and stepped up to help their communities. Their actions have demonstrated what it means to lead with love. These stories inspired us to take action to encourage even more positive change through the Athletes for Good Fund. Totaling more than $500,000, the Athletes for Good Fund celebrates and fuels the work of Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls who are partnering with charitable causes to help others and serve their communities in the areas of Community Impact, Equality & Inclusion, and Environmental Sustainability.
With the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), we are excited to announce the 52 winners of the Athletes for Good Fund. The grant recipients include 28 Olympic athletes and hopefuls and 24 Paralympic athletes and hopefuls, representing 20 countries and 25 sports. Each $10,000 grant goes to the charitable organization the athletes support, contributing to P&G’s Lead with Love consumer campaign commitment of 2,021 Acts of Good in 2021.
