We are committed to working to preserve the values of fair play, sportsmanship and drug-free competition in the world of sports. However, we are building on a foundation that was laid by many courageous individuals and organizations before us, and they deserve to be recognized.
That is the purpose of the Foundation for Global Sports Development Humanitarian Award. The Foundation for Global Sports Development Humanitarian Award is presented to individuals and organizations that have stepped up as leaders and champions for social, economic, political, or environmental justice and equality.
This award honors those who actively fight against indifference, injustice and intolerance. It recognizes those who promote an international spirit of understanding, cooperation, friendship, and development. Special attention is given to organizations and individuals that have enhanced the quality of life in their communities through mentorship and outreach.
Each recipient may select up to three non-profit organizations to which The Foundation for Global Sports Development will make a $100,000 donation in honor of the award recipient. The foundation typically selects the Humanitarian Award recipient in conjunction with the Summer and Winter Games.
