Donations are an essential part of Real Salt Lake's community outreach efforts and provide the team the opportunity to generate positive impact throughout the Salt Lake area. Giving back to the community allows RSL to support a vast number of organizations, which in turn can help those in need. RSL provides assistance to various schools, youth soccer events, and community organization/charities. RSL is committed to being an important part of the community and to improving the lives of children. Our players, coaches, and staff recognize the special need of those in our community and in expanding the game of soccer. We are happy to support your organization's fundraising endeavors through the donation of RSL's memorabilia and merchandise.
Making A Request
The following request policy has been developed as a way to create consistency and fairness to the organizations that ask for RSL's support. Due to the large number of inquiries we receive, we face the unfortunate task of making decisions and allocating resources responsibly. Therefore, not all requests are fulfilled, and a priority is given to those organizations located in Utah. We are unable to provide support for churches, synagogues or other places of worship for sectarian religious purposes. In addition, RSL is able to assist organizations only once per calendar year.

Please keep in mind that submitting an online request does NOT guarantee you organization will receive a donation.
