Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation wants to
spread the word of a
new funding opportunity for youth sports teams on the Peninsula. They believe that youth sports are a valuable community resource that helps bring
people together to strengthen bonds and creates better community members.
athletes have fun while building character and skills they will need throughout
their lives, on and off the field. It’s hard to believe then that billions of
dollars in funding cuts are reducing access to youth sports.
The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation’s Sports Matter initiative seeks
to raise awareness of the youth sports crisis and match community donations up
to $2 million on a new crowdfunding platform to save or start teams facing
financial challenges. GOOD/Corps, my organization, is excited to be partnering
with DICK’S on this effort.
If you know or are a potentially eligible team and program here is the application. Please help spread the word of this opportunity to any
coaches, teams, schools, organizations, etc.
For more information visit dicks.com/sportsmatter .
They will be hosting a webinar to give further information and
answer questions about the application on March
11th. Interested organizations should register ahead of time if they're
interested, as spots are limited.
Together, we can strengthen youth sports for
teams across the country.
