What we're about

FC Give, formerly known as PlaySoccer2Give is a non-profit organization using soccer for social change. Our mission is to promote generosity and to improve mental & physical health through soccer. We achieve this by empowering our Volunteer Game Leaders to build a safe, inclusive soccer community. Our members' donations and positive attitudes help FC Give create an equal game on and off the field. All skill levels are welcome. Hate speech and racism are not. Local Game. Global Change.

Proceeds support local & international charity partners using soccer as a tool for social change through college scholarship funds and increased coaching/mentorship capacity. A list of current/previous partners can be found at https://www.fcgive.org/charity-partners

Since the club's creation in 2010 we have:

Donated a total of nearly $200k to 10 different charities

Increased annual giving from $400 to nearly $53K in 2019

Hosted pickup games 7 days a week in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn

Grew our membership to over 6,500 NYC based soccer players

Directed two “soccer for social good” documentaries

Supported Team USA at three Homeless World Cup's (Oslo, Mexico City, Wales)
