The US Women’s National Team Players Association works to create positive advancement for its members on and off the field, and by extension the communities in which they play. The USWNT Players use their platform to change the game in a variety of areas they are passionate about, including equal pay, economic justice, and access to sport. This work is done through player advocacy and partnerships with organizations that do this on a local and global level.
The USWNT Players are partnering with Kiva, an international nonprofit organization with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive. By 2025, USWNTPA commits to deploying $2.5M in zero-fee, zero-interest loan capital to empower more than 400 small businesses through Kiva and the USWNT Player Impact Fund.
Through our work we seek to build a more inclusive and equitable community by providing micro loans to empower business owners where we live and play. Partnering with Kiva allows us to have a growing impact in supporting Economic Justice.
In honor of 50 years of Title IX, the filmmakers behind the feature documentary, LFG, are joining with us as an inaugural partner to the Friends of the USWNTPA Impact Fund for Kiva.
“Our fight for equal pay is one part of the desire to see a more equitable world. Our focus on economic justice and access are key ways to extend equality beyond the realm of sport.”
BECKY SAUERBRUNN, PRESIDENT | USWNTPA
