Sow Good Now, 501(c)(3), was founded in July of 2018 by three mothers who are former college athletes and who have raised athletes. The founders believe that everyone has unique gifts to offer the world and they created the SGN GiveBack Model as a space for those gifts to be shared. Philanthropic Athletes are great leaders for this new approach because they understand the importance of dedication, teamwork and diversity in working toward a common goal.
By bringing diverse community members together through the sports they love and integrating a spirit of generosity with active volunteerism and participatory grant making, a new and sustainable ecosystem of philanthropic giving is established.
The SGN GiveBack model transforms the individual athlete by inspiring passion, providing philanthropic education, and developing leadership skills through decision making in participatory grantmaking.
Communities are transformed through a four year commitment to host the GiveBacks and long lasting relationships are built through peer and near peer mentoring and connecting community leaders.
SGN GiveBacks are an opportunity for funders to share power, lift youth voices and apply innovation in addressing social issues for a better tomorrow.
We can do better, and we are.
