Our Goals:

Our goal is to provide young women in the United States and around the world the opportunity to experience unique leadership training and then support their leadership efforts. The Foundation continues to target communities and regions in which the opportunity for organized leadership training is missing. We aim to also support organizations with similar philosophies toward leadership and sports.

Due to the generous contributions from corporate sponsors and individual benefactors, the Foundation has funded more than 400 scholarships for young women to attend the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy (the “JFSLA”). Since its inception in 2006, the Foundation has also nurtured a unique seed-funding grant program to support young women in their efforts to create and implement their own leadership service projects within their communities.

We invite you to get acquainted with our efforts and join us in facilitating leadership training for young women. Together we can continue to teach leadership lessons that strengthen our communities and continue to develop the women leaders of tomorrow — leaders on the field AND leaders in life!
