Puma FC Foundation is a charitable organization that utilizes the power of soccer to Inspire, Educate and Affect Change to underserved youth in the community. The Foundation enables the provision of soccer scholarships, health and nutrition education and much needed support to at-risk youth in the community.
Through our commitment to affect change we can continue to provide soccer scholarships to pay for annual soccer club fees, uniform orders or league fees. Through our dedication to inspire and educate we can provide volunteers and soccer coaches to be leaders in the community.
No matter what the charity, helping others is a reward. If you are not involved in any, or looking for a way to contribute, please contact us about becoming a Puma FC volunteer, a coach or financially donating to our Foundation to help serve at-risk youth in the community.
Children’s Mercy Hospital ‘Happy Kits’
As we look to be a leader in giving back to our community and affect change together, Puma FC Foundation holds an annual event in cooperation with Children’s Mercy Hospital. We gather coaches, players, parents and volunteers to put together “Happy Kits” full of crayons, coloring books, card games and much more that bring a smile to the faces of children aged between 2-16 years old who are receiving treatment at Children’s Mercy Hospital.
Through kind donations of time and gifts in 2019 the Foundation put together nearly 200 Happy Kits that were given to the hospital. A big thank you also goes out to the The Soccer Lot who donated their facility space for us to put the kits together and have a fun inclusive kick around.
Kick Back Your Gear
Kick Back Your Gear is an initiative to affect change and inspire under-served soccer programs in the community. Puma FC players donate back soccer cleats, shin guards and soccer balls that are used to fulfill soccer needs at schools and independent teams. Through in-kind donations from Puma FC players and families in 2019, we donated soccer gear to Crossroads Preparatory Academy for their inaugural year of soccer.
Have some gear you don’t want or need anymore? Contact Dave Driscoll at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to coordinate a time to drop off any items.
