D.C. United Foundation

Kicks for Kids provides the game-day experience for urban, inner-city and under-served youth throughout the Greater Washington, D.C. region each season.

Each year, approximately 7,500 disadvantaged youth, families and chaperones come to RFK to watch D.C. United through this program, on behalf of over 100 various non-profit organizations. Representing all wards of Washington DC and various organizations in Northern VA and Maryland, beneficiaries include: the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Children’s Inn at NIH, DC SCORES, the Latin American Youth Center, and Children’s National Medical Center.


Approved non profit organizations will receive:

  • Free D.C. United game tickets in a lower level section including access to post-game autographs
  • Food and drink vouchers in order to provide light snacks for the youth while at the games
  • Kicks for Kids t-shirts for all youth attending the D.C. United game
  • Access to transportation funding to assist with bringing the youth to the games
