Big League Philanthropist Podcast

with Danielle Berman 

The Big League Philanthropist podcast shares stories of athletes and nonprofits using the power of sports to change the world.

We aim to highlight the positive work that athletes are doing in the community. From running foundations to investing in sustainable community projects, athletes are doing amazing work to make the world better.

In each episode we’ll discover what inspired these athletes to get involved in their philanthropic work and what motivates them everyday to keep going. We’ll learn WHY they got involved and how we can help support their mission. 

Our Partnership with Open Goal Project

In 2020 and 2021, Tackle What's Next has had the pleasure of teaming up with Open Goal Project to run a self-discovery program during the OGP summer cohort program and skills camp.

Open Goal Project is an organization based in Washington DC whose mission is to create opportunities for young athletes from low-income families and underserved communities to access high-level soccer, to empower players and their families to navigate the costs and barriers associated with participating in youth sports, and use soccer as a vehicle for cultural enrichment, higher educational opportunities, and better life experiences.
