The Sports Philanthropy Project (SPP) works to maximize the impact that professional sports leagues, teams and athletes can have in impacting social need in our society. From areas as diverse as health, to youth development, to environmental concerns—the sports industry possesses elements which are unparalleled in effecting change when deployed strategically.
At SPP we provide technical assistance in order to maximize the use of these assets. For over 15 years, SPP’s Principals Greg Johnson and Van Le have been
working to advance the philanthropic practice and knowledge base of the industry. SPP works primarily with the non-profit and governmental sectors in order to advance public goals by way of harnessing sports industry assets. In cases of corporate, sports business, and cause related marketing need SPP is able to serve where the impact of the philanthropy involved is meant to be sustained and comprehensive. SPP projects are conducted both on-site as well as virtually. SPP is funded both by grants as well as by means of direct contracts. Please refer to our Contact section for further details.
Yours in philanthropy, Greg and Van
