Community Sponsorship

Modell's is proud to be a member of your community. Throughout our history, we have been focused on programs that support families, youth, education, and physical activity. We view each customer as our neighbor and strive to:
  • Improve the quality of life for our communities
  • Make sports accessible to everyone
  • Get kids more physically active
  • Have real, positive, and measurable impact

Eligibility: U.S. applicants must be tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or a unit of government if the contribution is solely for charitable or public purposes. We also focus our corporate giving to communities where Modell's has a local retail presence.

How to Apply: Modell’s Sporting Goods encourages organizations to apply for either a sponsorship request or a charitable giving request. 

Sponsorship Requests: These are reserved for organizations seeking financial assistance from Modell’s Sporting Goods in exchange for marketable assets, directly linked to an event and or organization initiative.
