A little bit can go a long way.
interested in donating?
Please note: Due to overwhelming volume of equipment donations (YAY!) we are on hold for accepting any new equipment drives until further notice.
Kids in Haiti often play soccer barefoot, kicking around plastic bottles or tin cans if they can’t find a ball. One of the biggest ways you can help a GOALS kid in Haiti is to donate new and lightly used soccer equipment.
With your help, GOALS can give these players cleats, socks, shin guards, shorts, shirts, and goalkeeper gear. In addition, we can supply teams with sports equipment materials such as pinnies, cones, soccer balls, pumps and needles to play soccer safely and with dignity. With enough donate equipment, GOALS can start programs in new areas, which include soccer, community service, and health and educational opportunities. A little bit can go a long way in Haiti, so every donation makes a big difference!
what our players need
Soccer equipment for boys and girls aged 8 to 18: soccer balls, cleats, socks, shorts, uniforms, gloves, goalie apparel, etc. We have a real need for cleats sized 6 or larger. See our wish list for more details.
Sport-related materials such as pinnies, cones, whistles, pumps and needles, corner flags, TROPHIES! etc.
We need help covering shipping costs. A $50 donation is required for each box. This will allow us to ship the materials to Haiti to reach our children directly. If you are unable to make this donation, please email us with an inventory of your items. Depending on circumstances, we can make exceptions on a case by case basis. Thank you for understanding.
We do not accept:
Dirty, torn, or unusable apparel, gear, equipment, materials, etc.
Clothing unsuitable for sports activities or cooler climates, such as jeans, tank tops, cotton t-shirts, pants, sweatshirts, jackets, etc.
We are not in need of shin guards at this time.
how to organize an equipment drive
Register your equipment drive with GOALS by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Determine the goal for your drive: Is there a deadline? A certain amount of equipment you’d like to collect?
Spread the word about your drive by contacting your friends, family members, colleagues, classmates, and neighbors. We recommend you contact local soccer clubs and organizations in the area. If you use social media to share your event remember to tag us or share the link with us and we can help promote as well.
Collect equipment! Make sure you write down each donation and make sure gear is clean and undamaged.
When your drive is complete
Send the gear to GOALS! Please mail donations with your name or organization clearly marked on the outside of the box. We then take responsibility for shipping the equipment to Haiti. Please note: It may take up to 4 weeks for donations to be processed and cards and emails to be received.

Many GOALS children in Haiti lost their soccer clothes and shoes to Hurricane Matthew and are in need of cleats, uniforms and practice wear of all sizes for children ages 8-18. If you would like to learn more about how Hurricane Matthew affected GOALS, please see this update or visit our Crowdrise page to donate to our recovery efforts.
