New website at

We have a new and improved website at so please check that one out! This one will be phased out in the coming year.

Thank you to five donors who donated a total of $840 in the last two weeks!

Thank you everyone for the recent outpouring of support! We usually get around 800 dollars a year in donations, but in the last two weeks, we had 5 donors donating a total of 840 dollars! We ordered keychains to send out with thank you notes for the donors, so if you donated recently, expect a thank-you goodie in the mail soon! With this money, we will be able to buy more equipment, especially uniforms, and be able to serve more kids. Also, thanks to the Sanabul sports equipment company for agreeing to donate 40 pairs of gloves, 30 pairs of hand wraps, and 3 mitts. We had been using Sanabul gloves, and the company noticed that in our recent news videos and were generous and kind enough to donate equipment. They are highly affordable quality gloves. We can’t wait to receive them and will be posting photos once they arrive!!!! No more passing gloves around because not everyone has a pair during practice!

We now accept donations by Paypal so you can donate with your Paypal account, credit card, or debit card!

100% of donations go straight to the program to buy equipment, pay for transportation, food, and educational costs. No overhead!!

We now accept donations!

Thank you for visiting our website! The North Lawndale Boxing League-Boxing Out Negativity has always been run by volunteers,and as our program grows, resources become scarce. Please consider making a donation to the program to cover the costs of boxing equipment and transportation, so that the program can continue to grow and flourish! If you would like to donate any boxing equipment, please contact us first through our Facebook page to make sure we are in need of the specific equipment you kindly want to donate.

Please send donations in the form of a check to:



Address:4059 W 21st, Chicago IL, 60623
UPDATE: Now you can donate online to our newest fundraising drive at gofundme: We are in dire need of funds for equipment and transportation. Transportation is crucial because the neighborhoods our kids live in are dangerous to walk through, so we secure transportation for them to and from lessons and boxing matches. Right now, the program is held from Coach Derek’s garage and he’s paying for the costs out of his own pocket. Donations will directly go to new equipment, school supplies, and snacks for the kids after school.
