To help future youth athletes have equal opportunities by providing soccer sports equipment, scholarships and cleats.
From then to now!
Founder/President Rachel Edelstein at 2018 first event!
At first it wasn't clear whether this was going to be something of success, it took months and lots of failure before finding fantastic nonprofits to work with. Special thanks to Orange County DA's office and OC GRIP for teaming up with our founder to make such a special organization. Over the last two years Rachel and her family has come together to put cleats on over a 1000 kiddos! From Orange County to Uganda, CFFA has grown a local name for itself! CFFA is thrilled to reach donating over 1000 cleats in the last two years, and want to thank the community for amazing support.
Teaming up with Michigan nonprofit Clean Out for A Cause we have sent over a thousand pounds of t-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, and cleats.
With their help most of this gear will be headed to Uganda to the Cranes City Futbol Club!
Clean out For A Cause has helped us with the shipping international needs and has made it easy to box up and send all of our gear.
A local high school Girl Scout, Macey has reached out for help starting her own mentor network! CFFA donated 10 exclusively picked out pairs, ten water bottles and ten BRAND NEW BALLS! Thanks to Macey and Slammer Futbol club ten girls who couldn't afford private training, cleats or gear are receiving it from Macey. Macey has been awesome to mentor, she has been an outstanding person to work with.
CFFA has gone International! First donation to the Progressive Futbol club in Jamaica 80+ pairs and 20 brand new team balls. Thanks to Jamaican National Team player Dom Bond-Flaza, Progressive Futbol Club in Portland Jamaica have new gear from CFFA.
Thomas House Shelter of Orange County has been a partner of CFFA since early 2019. Personalized soccer bags, balls and cleats were distributed through the 2019. In 2020, another donation of cleats were made for them to have on hand when new kids arrive.
CFFA and Kids Play of Orange
teamed up to give 30 kids brand
new soccer balls and
donated cleats! Kids Play of Orange is one of the first nonprofits to work exclusively with CFFA. This nonprofit spoke volumes to CFFA as it is battling the pay-to-play aspect of our sports culture.

OC Gang Reduction Intervention and Prevention or OC GRIP is the first organization to ever accept donations from CFFA and is also the organization that inspired to beginning of CFFA. After attending a soccer camp in 2018 and not one of the several hundred kids had cleats, Cleats for Future Athletes was born! Due to COVID we were unable to give this year but hope for a safe return in 2021.
OC GRIP is run through the OC Sherrifs department and for more information please ocgrip.org
Angels Breast Cancer Event held by Stacey Feltman in 2019 was an amazing event, due to COVID 2020 has been postponed. Last year, we threw a fundraiser through AYSO to collect local used cleats. For every cleat we collected we donated one dollar to this event, CFFA happily donated over $80 to this awesome event!
Stacey is one of the most empowering women, overcoming cancer and becoming an advocate for it. If interested, her next event will be held in 2021, please visit
