Nike Community Impact Fund: Employee-led grants supporting local organizations that get kids moving

We know kids do better when they have access to sport, and the 2022 Nike Community Impact Fund (NCIF) is ready to help make that happen in the communities where our employees live, work and play.

Since 2009, NCIF has awarded $10 million through 1,000+ grants to grassroots nonprofits that help create active communities and get kids moving. This year, we’ll keep the momentum going with $1.5 million in grants to support local programs in 14 key cities and employee backyards across the U.S., Europe and Asia.

What makes the program so special: We invite our employees to share their local insights and play a leading role in choosing the grantees — because no one knows what their neighborhood needs more than the people who live there.

“The opportunity to give back to our community was super exciting and rewarding,” says Nike Watts Community Store Head Coach Paola De La Cruz, who helped determine last year’s NCIF grantees for her neighborhood. “As a team, we selected local organizations such as East Side Riders, Watts Skills Academy, and Sisters of Watts, and we’ve seen those funds go to work, allowing our partners to purchase backpacks, school clothes and sports equipment for kids in our neighborhoods.”

An organization in your neighborhood can be part of that positive impact too. Applications are open now for eligible nonprofits, community organizations and schools at purpose.nike.com/ncif.

“Nominate those that need the help, those that are close to your heart,” encourages De La Cruz. “These grants go straight into the community, and it is so important that we do our part to make play possible for more kids.”
