A firm believer in youth sports leagues, Craig Fant is a proud sponsor of charities and organizations dedicated to providing children with the opportunity to participate and succeed in athletics.
Craig Fant is proud supporter of Good Sports, an organization dedicated to equipping economically disadvantaged youth with sporting gear. Good Sports works directly with sporting good manufacturers and corporations to gather donations of sports equipment, apparel, footwear and more. Craig Fant frequently takes part in the charity’s Equip-A-Kid program, an easily navigable donation segment on the Good Sports official website. Equip-A-Kid allows donors to directly sponsor a child in need by selecting a sport that he/she would wish to support. Donors are able to select a sport which they feel a particular connection to so that the donation feels both transparent and personal.
Track & Field
Craig Fant often opts to donate to the Football and General Fitness categories. Equip-A-Child provides him with the opportunity to select how many helmets, shoulder pads and footballs he would like to donate to a youth football league. This personal purchase takes away the burning “where is my money going?” question that some may feel with other charitable organizations. When Craig Fant donates to Good Sports, he is confident in knowing that he has gifted a child with the exact equipment needed to participate in his or her sport.
Good Sports also hosts a variety of parties and galas where young professionals involved in the organization raise thousands of dollars to support the fitness and sports opportunities of children in need across the country.
Craig Fant also attends various events hosted by Beyond Sport. Beyond Sport is a global organization which encourages athletes to spark positive change in their communities by tying together athleticism and social activism.
Craig Fant and Beyond Sport share the core value that youth sports help children to build solid leadership skills. Beyond Sport sets focus on encouraging children to develop their on-field leadership skills into active tools for making positive social changes in their communities. The organization also works with professional athletes on campaigns to encourage athletic activity across the globe. Beyond Sport organizes various fundraisers, events and educational opportunities for disadvantaged youth all over the world.
Craig Fant attends the organization’s workshops both as a volunteer and as a donor. He is a strong supporter of the work Beyond Sport does to connect athletes with social issues both locally and globally.
