Donor Legacy and our Joining Our Boards

Donor Legacy

Coaches Across Continents creates meaningful change in the lives of millions of people in hundreds of communities on six continents - all at a fraction of the budget of other organizations of similar size and scope. We rely primarily on the generous donations of individuals who step up to be a part of our Donor Legacy Program. Our unique approach gives each donor the choice to impact the issues, communities, and initiatives that mean the most to them. Coaches Across Continents is a registered 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax-deductible!

Our Staff, Teams, and Board of Directors

Coaches Across Continents has a dedicated and diverse group of individuals who make up our staff, teams, and board of directors. They include ex-English Premier League executives, US Soccer Hall of Fame members, World Cup Champions, professional coaches, Harvard graduates, world travelers, and business professionals. As a group they are able to complement each others strengths and deliver an organization which continues to be a global leader in sport for social impact.

To ensure that our 501 (c) 3 organization and UK-registered charity run as efficiently as possible, we have created four unique boards and teams to help guide our operations.

1. The Board of Directors oversees the whole organization and ensures that we run an efficient business.
2. The Coach Advisory Team works on our curriculum, on-line mentoring, and coach education. They also are committed to volunteer and staff recruitment.
3. The Business Advisory Team examines how we best develop our not-for-profit business model and connects with grants, foundations, and corporations for partnerships.
4. The ASK For Choice Advisory Team works to bring gender policies to life around the world, as well as the sustainability of this initiative.

CAC's Sophie Legros sums up the feelings of the team when she says that “I am still amazed at the power soccer has to transcend language or cultures and to connect people.”
