Girls4Sport Foundation

Established at the conception of Girls4Sport, Inc., the Girls4Sport Foundation supports organizations and programs that provide girls of all ages with the skills, support, and opportunity to lead active lives with confidence. We seek to support organizations and endeavors such as school sports programs, sports camps and clinics, and heath and lifestyle education.

Girls4Sport, Inc. makes yearly donations to the Girls4Sport Foundation at its board's discretion, adjusted annually with business growth.


How to Apply::

STEP 1: Preliminary Inquiry
Preliminary inquiries by letter are accepted if questions exist on funding priorities. The Girls4Sport Foundation realizes that the application process can be time-consuming and recommends the submission of a one-page preliminary application letter. The letter should include the name, address, telephone number and organization classification of your organization, a description of your organization's objectives and programs, and the specified amount of money being requested and its proposed use.

A request asking the Foundation to consider a portion of the support for a project will generally receive priority than one asking the Foundation to be the only funding source. (This policy is to encourage the grantee to seek a wide base of financial support).


STEP 2: Foundation Review
The Foundation reviews preliminary requests as they are received and responds within 60 days. The Foundation will notify the organization if any further documentation is needed. The Foundation supports selected activities in the form of challenge, matching, one-time or, on occasion, multi-year grants.


STEP 3: Making a Formal Proposal
If a preliminary proposal is chosen for further consideration, the organization will be invited to submit a full proposal that consists of the following information:
