To more effectively process donation requests, Nike has switched to an online grant application process for all product donation requests in the U.S. and the Netherlands. Nike will no longer accept hard copy or email proposals. Any requests for the U.S. and the Netherlands received outside of the online application process will not be reviewed.
If you are in the U.S., please click the U.S. Donation Request link to apply for a Nike product donation.
At this time, Nike only supports product donation requests. Nike does not accept unsolicited cash proposals.
If you are a non-profit organization outside of the US or the Netherlands, please send your request to Consumer.Services@nike.com; please note that this email address is only for countries outside the United States and the Netherlands.
If you are a non-profit organization or school in the Portland, Oregon metro area, you may qualify to apply for a cash grant from the Nike Employee Grant Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation. The deadline for all applications is November 15, 2010.
If you are a non-profit program on Native Lands, please visit the Nike N7 Fund Web site to learn more about applying for grants.
Nike continues to seek innovative ways to make positive changes through sport and encourage potential partners to participate in the Changemakers “Sport for a Better World” ongoing competitions. Changemakers is a primary mechanism Nike uses to learn more about grassroots innovators using sport as a tool for social change.
In all instances the following guidelines apply to Nike grant-making.
Nike will not support organizations that discriminate against a person or a group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.
What We Don't Do
In order to maintain focus and achieve greater impact of corporate giving, Nike will not provide charitable support for:
- Individuals (scholarships, stipends, fellowships, personal assistance);
- Individual sports teams sponsorships;
- For-profit ventures;
- Religious groups for religious purposes;
- Capital campaigns, endowment funds or memorials;
- Lobbying, political or fraternal activities;
- Individual study, research or travel grants; or
- Awards that require Nike and/or its employees to raise monies on behalf of an organization bestowing the award
- Unsolicited auction product or table sponsorships
Should your request align to one of the categories listed above you will not be eligible for a Nike Donation and your request will be denied.
Each year, Nike proactively donates product to nonprofit organizations and NGOs dedicated to creating social change through sport and disaster relief efforts around the world. Nike will not provide product donations to individual sports teams in order to clearly separate our philanthropy from our marketing efforts.
