Laureus USA is a grant-making, nonprofit organization that supports the growth and deepens the impact of 50 sport for development organizations nationwide. We believe in the power of sport to change the world, as proclaimed by our founding patron Nelson Mandela:
Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
We galvanize our diverse range of partners, including nonprofits, athletes, schools, and corporations, around a shared vision of sport as a force for positive change. By supporting programs on the ground and driving collaboration nationwide, we are able to achieve our mission of improving the lives of youth and uniting communities through the power of sport.
