What is Second Effort Foundation?

Second Effort Foundation is a provincially registered non-profit organization in Calgary, Alberta that collects new and gently used soccer equipment and redistributes it to children in need of quality gear around the world.

Gear is donated from across Canada and redistributed to communities in need through various partnerships, associations, and organization. Donation requests can be submitted on behalf of players/communities in need and will be reviewed and assessed by the board. Arrangements are made for approved requests and trusted teams, travelers, mission groups, societies, and other charitable organizations transport and distribute the equipment accordingly around the world. This process ensures that gear is efficiently shared with our global teammates.
