WHAT WE SUPPORT
FOX Sports Supports the right of all youth to play and access sports for the numerous physical, emotional and educational benefits connected to physical activity. However, a growing number of external factors are making it harder for children to experience the joy of play while building healthy foundations for their lives.
Similarly, the men and women of our armed forces face increasing challenges transitioning into civilian life after completing their service and sacrifice to our country. FOX Sports Supports opening the doors of opportunity for these heroes.
Our goal is to create and advance fighting chances in communities nationwide that help both youth and military grow personally, as well as professionally, and lead fulfilling lives.
FOX Sports Supports a combination of grassroots and national organizations to create fighting chances for youth and military in the local communities where many of our employees live and work (Los Angeles, New York City and Charlotte) and advance the efforts being made for both in communities across the country.
