LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD
Honest Game Foundation’s mission is to level the playing field so that every student has a fair and equitable opportunity to attend college. We do this by partnering with corporations and donors to support schools, students, and families with data solutions and interventions that close achievement gaps and open college access and opportunity. Honest Game Foundation is focused on eliminating barriers to college access, particularly simplifying the complex academic eligibility requirements needed to gain entry to college as a student-athlete. Our funding supports schools, students, and families with technology and expertise to provide resources like step-by-step guidance that opens pathways to higher education. The Foundation is a separate not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, governed by an independent board of directors.
As part of its Fuel Tomorrow campaign, Gatorade and the Honest Game Foundation have teamed up to fuel educational opportunities and remove barriers to equity and access in sports. Fuel Tomorrow is a multi-year initiative to help everyone have equal opportunities to play sports and realize their potential.
We know participation in sports is associated with higher academic performance and stronger communities. Yet many talented student-athletes are left on the sidelines after high school because of a technicality.
The opportunity barrier? The complex eligibility requirements necessary to play college sports keeps nearly one million student-athletes from accessing a college education and scholarships.
We believe data can be a force for good. Through collaboration with Honest Game Foundation, our partners are harnessing innovative and accessible services so that students can access a path to post-secondary education.
What we fund:
The stakes are high. We know that a college degree is the best chance for economic mobility, and the costs continue to rise. Yet school budgets are strained, especially in underserved communities. The Honest Game Foundation partners with an array of private donors and corporate partners to solve this issue.
