Let soccer do what soccer does.

About the U.S. Soccer Foundation

At the U.S. Soccer Foundation, we transform children’s lives by tackling challenges facing communities that can hold children back from living healthy, productive lives. We focus our efforts where the need is greatest. We work in communities where a lack of resources and support systems limit opportunities. Often, children living in these communities lack safe and easily accessible places to play and miss out on the life skills development and health benefits well-designed soccer programs with trained coach-mentors provide.

Our Core Values

It takes an entire team of dedicated individuals to achieve our goals. Our core values guide our team members and drive our work forward.

  • Embrace Ambition: We do not settle for what is, we are innovative and push the status quo. We are comfortable with the uncomfortable; big goals bring on unchartered territory. We seek to continuously improve and always pursue excellence.
  • Community-Focused: We take a ‘work with, not for or to’ approach. We engage communities to drive systemic change. We are conscious leaders, sharing tools for success.
  • Dynamic Team Spirit: We are fun and passionate about our cause. We support our teammates’ successes and priorities. We strive to be a team that considers all perspectives and reflects our diverse communities.
