The Foundation

The Challenger Foundation is supported by Nationwide Insurance.

Since their inception in 1985, the company has raised over $15 million dollars directly benefiting the players, parents, and coaches involved in grassroots soccer programs in each of the 50 US states and in 7 Canadian provinces. As an additional gift to each community, Challenger also provided hundreds of free coaching clinics for thousands of local volunteer coaches. Challenger has partnered with United Soccer Coaches to help provide grassroots training where it is needed most – to the mom or dad who has kindly given up their time to coach their child’s team in the local league.

Each year Challenger Sports also donates valuable equipment, soccer balls and uniforms to many soccer based charities, schools, orphanages and missions in Central and South America and Africa.

Dear Mr. Arch,

I just wanted to thank all of you one more time for your incredibly generous donations. We were able to fill up 16 suitcases filled with cleats, balls, jerseys, shorts, shinguards, socks, cones and sweatshirts. The response was overwhelming. Last month, Oceans of Mercy was able to deliver the gear. Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with me and for delivering the goods.  Thanks again and best of luck to all your kids in their upcoming Spring soccer season.
Reneé –
