Support Athletes for Hope

Celebrate 10 years of AFH University! Donate to Agents of Change today!


General Giving

With a charitable donation, you are enabling us to work with athletes at all levels to help them ignite their passions and make a difference across a vast range of causes. You are also bolstering the important work of our charitable partners throughout the country as well as our ongoing programming supporting underserved youth physical activity, hospital visits, mental health and AFH University.

Together, we can harness the unifying power of the athletic spirit to make a difference in the world.

Any amount donated to Athletes for Hope enables us to bring athletes together to educate and inspire them to channel their energy for a common goal: to make a difference in the world.

The Ivan Blumberg Legacy Fund

Established in 2021, the Gordon and Llura Gund Foundation created the Ivan Blumberg Legacy Fund with a $1 million gift to seed-fund new – or enhance existing ways – to move AFH’s mission forward. The fund will support work particularly focused on underserved communities.

Please learn more about the fund here.
