Our Mission

We work with professional athletes and teams to strengthen families who are struggling mentally, spiritually, and physically - all through the vehicle of sports.


Fighting Hunger Through On-Field & On-Court Performance

The Athletes’ Corner has partnered with the largest hunger-relief organization in the country, Feeding America®, to launch a new initiative called ‘The Athletes’ Corner vs. Hunger’. The Athletes’ Corner vs. Hunger takes a unique approach to fight hunger, as we link our meal-donations with the in-game performance of the athletes and teams we partner with.  What is our motive for this campaign?  Matthew 25.

Help us fight hunger!

Athlete Foundation Partnerships

As a 501c3 non-profit organization, one of our major initiatives is to partner with the athlete’s foundations to increase our effectiveness in helping families.  We know that athletes have an incredible platform of influence, and we know that if we donate through the athlete’s foundation, the impact we will have on families will be greater and more lasting!
