Do NCAA teams need approval from Compliance?
We encourage each Equipment Director, Coach, or Team to check if there are any special policies at their University. We have found the 2 biggest NCAA Compliance related items are:
1) Making sure MOAM does not benefit any Potential Student Athletes. We do not.
2) Making sure MOAM is a verified 501c3 nonprofit. We are.
We are of course very happy to help with any special questions or requests!

“MOAM collects items from our locker room and maximizes their impact far beyond what I ever imagined their value to be. There is not a simpler, or more effective way to clean out my locker each season, than by donating these items to MOAM.”

"As a former manager I understand the commitment student managers make to their respective program. MOAM has created an amazing opportunity to reward them for their hard-work in a manner that will help them grow as men and women and assist those in need. It would have been an incredible experience to participate through MOAM early in my career."
