Goals for Good 2011 Recap and 2012 Future

Now that the season is over, the email reminders to actually donate have been sent out to the 10 people who participated in this initial Goals for Good program for fans of Sporting Kansas City.  These 10 people pledged a total of $25 for each goal scored at LiveSTRONG Sporting Park by Sporting KC.  With 29 goals scored at home by Kei, CJ, Omar and the gang, that is $725 pledged to 4 great charities (LiveSTRONG, Harvester's, Humane Society, City of Joplin)

As a bonus for participating this year, the initial 10 donors will all get input on helping select the first round of donor recipients to be reviewed for the 2012 Goals for Good program.

Here are some ideas we are floating around for next year to make this an even bigger fan supported program:
  • Open nomination and selection process for the 4 donor recipient positions (prior to the season starting)
  • Collaborating with the recipients in co-promoting this endeavor
  • Collaboration with key stakeholders in the SKC community
  • Banner in LSP showing who much money pledged per goal made
  • Adding an option to pledge for clean sheets to reward defensive play
  • Giveaways/contests to encourage people to pledge
  • Option for public recognition of your pledge
  • Option for businesses to get involved
Thanks again to those who participated this year.  If you would like to help out with Goals for Good in 2012 please email
