Our Mission is to Provide Quality Football for All!Eastern FC is a youthful organization that is focused on player development to the premier, college, professional, and beyond. Pride, Passion, and Professionalism are at the foundation of our program.
Eastern Soccer Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization that is recognized as a 501c3 by the Internal Revenue Service, and donations are fully deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.
The primary goal of the foundation is that we would like to see all those interested in playing soccer be able to participate regardless of their financial position.
We take pride in all of the children who give so much of their energy to the sport soccer. Our goals are simple, but without the support from other parents, corporations, foundations and the community, they will be difficult to achieve. All of our officers and directors serve on a volunteer basis and, therefore, receive no compensation.
We thank you for your support, but most importantly, the kids thank you!

“I would not be where I am today without the help of the Eastern Soccer Foundation. My family was unable to afford the costs of premier soccer. Eastern FC creates players that think beyond themselves. The coaches believe in developing soccer players beyond the pitch as part of a family. I have graduated Columbia University with a degree in Psychology. I continue to share all that I learned at Eastern to help children in my line of work become happier and more confident."
