Laureus USA is a grant-making, nonprofit organization that supports the growth and deepens the impact of programs that use sport for social change. We believe in the power of sport to change the world, as proclaimed by our founding patron Nelson Mandela:
Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
We galvanize our diverse range of partners, including nonprofits, athletes, schools, and corporations, around a shared vision of sport as a force for positive change. By supporting programs that directly serve youth, and driving collaboration between leaders from many sectors, we are able to advance our mission of to improve the lives of youth and unite communities through the power of sport.
