Academy Cares

Community Involvement

A cornerstone of the Academy® Sports + Outdoors philosophy is active community support and grassroots involvement.  

Dating back to the early days of our founding, Academy has had a long history of giving back to local communities via partnerships with sports teams, youth organizations, and outdoors and conservation programs.  

We take pride in carrying on the tradition through events like our annual bike donation program, where stores donate over 4,700 new bikes and helmets to local elementary schools all throughout December. We even hop on our own bikes for the annual MS150 to help raise funds for the National MS Soceity.  

During happy occasions like celebrating a new store opening, we host community give back events and get the chance to meet our new neighbors. But most importantly, we’re there when our communities need us the most during natural disasters, helping in whatever way we can. 

Through community participation, we get the chance to show appreciation for our team members, our customers, and the local community as a whole.
