Frequently Asked Questions

What We Do

What is the Compete Sports Diversity Council?


The CSDC is a membership organization comprised of individuals and organizations working together to harness The Power of Sports Community. As a membership community we connect, support, mentor and build our organizations together.




How have you connected members?


We recently connected several of our non-profit sports organizations so that they could create a sports festival together. A second example is that we introduced a non-profit member to a professional football team that resulted in a $5,000+ sponsorship. We have many more stories like this so please just ask us




What is an example of how you suppport members?


We helped one our CVB members raise their MEI (Municipal Equality Index) score from 42 to 92.




What do you mean by "mentor" members?


We often work one-on-one with our members, whether they be individuals or organizations. We have mentored members on fundraising, sponsorships, creating tournament RFPS and more. For example, we will be launching a “tournament in the box” program through a a webinar and will offer individual mentoring on the topic to members as needed.




Can you give an example of building our organizations together?


We provide an open forum for our members to collaborate and support each other. We often introduce members that are experts in a particular area with a member in need. For example, we have members that are experts in municiple grants that are happy to guide members applying for such grants.
