Sport Clips Gives Back
A Team That Puts Community First
At the heart of the Sport Clips Haircuts culture is our values system. Our system was inspired by the same core values Coach Lou Holtz used to build championship football teams: "Do your best. Do what’s right. Treat others the way they want to be treated.” Founder and CEO Gordon Logan and his family put these values into action in 2013 when they pledged to donate $1 million to Georgetown, Texas-area nonprofits, where Sport Clips is based.
The Logan Family has been recognized for their philanthropic work with numerous programs, including:
- USO at Ft. Hood, Texas
- R.O.C.K. – Ride On Center for Kids (equine therapy for kids and veterans)
- The Boys and Girls Club
At Sport Clips, we understand what a pivotal role a community plays in the success of local business and that is why we strive to give back! We truly care about our clients and the community we all share. Sport Clips is also a proud supporter of many organizations at the national and local level including, but not limited to, those on this page.

VFW's “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” Program
Sport Clips has supported and currently supports, numerous veteran services organizations. As a veteran and recipient of the Veterans of Foreign Wars famed “Citizenship Award” and as a Life Member of the VFW, Gordon has also made it his mission to support the military, giving back and following the core value of the company he founded – to treat others as they would like to be treated.
The VFW’s "Sport Clips’
Help A Hero Scholarship" program has contributed almost $8 million to the VFW
since 2013, with its primary focus on funding scholarships for service
members and veterans working toward finishing their education and taking
the next steps in their post-military careers. By providing scholarships
for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is
to make the transition from a military career to the civilian workforce
a little easier. From degrees in law, medicine, business, education, engineering
and many more, these men and women share a common desire to make a
difference as civilians.
St. Baldrick’s Foundation
In 2016, Sport Clips Haircuts proudly signed on as St. Baldrick’s Foundation’s first national sponsor, committing to give more than $1 million dollars in support of childhood cancer research over the next three years. Since then Sport Clips joined the fight against cancer in local communities by assisting in raising funds for childhood cancer research while also supporting and hosting local shave events. In 2019, the brand agreed to another three-year, $1 million commitment to St. Baldrick’s to continue to support their cancer research funding. Learn more about St. Baldrick’s by visiting their website, and join us in supporting their important mission!

Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation
Sport Clips is the primary sponsor for Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation, a non-profit organization established and dedicated to honoring seniors and United States military veterans. Through donations, and with its all-volunteer group, including the pilots who provide the flights, the foundation provides once-in-a-lifetime “Dream Flights” to veterans, many of whom served during WWII, in a Boeing Stearman biplane, the same aircraft used to train many military aviators in the late thirties and early forties. AADF hosts between 800 to 1,000 flights each year, covering the majority of the United States.
American Red Cross Blood Services
Since September 2015, Sport Clips has supported the American Red Cross Blood Services through its annual Saving Lives Never Looked So Good! Campaign. During September, presenting donors receive a coupon for a free haircut that can be redeemed at participating Sport Clips locations. It’s our way of saying thank you to the hundreds of thousands of blood and platelet donors around the country. Through our continued commitment to the Red Cross, Sport Clips’ Team Members and clients understand the need for blood and platelets never goes away, and is often drastically increased when disasters strike. For more information on lifesaving blood donations please consider Giving the Gift of Life.
Honor Flight Network (Austin)
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices.

Top priority is given to senior veterans – World War II in particular, along with other veterans who may be terminally ill. Sport Clips specifically supports the Austin, Texas Honor Flight division.
