Featured Grant Opportunities: Finish Line Youth Foundation

Many people are familiar with Finish Line as a store for athletic gear and all kinds of cool footwear, but did you know they offer multiple different grant opportunities? With a goal of “supporting the communities where our customers and employees work and play” the Finish Line Youth Foundation backs up this motto with grant funding.

The FLYF offers three types of grants:

Regular Grants – These grants go target youth athletic programs as well as established camps with an emphasis on sports and active lifestyle.

Founder’s Grants – Also known as emergency fund grants, these grants are targeted toward organizations who are experiencing unforeseen circumstances that may prohibit the organization from providing current services.  Awards are made in the amount of $5,000 to $25,000.

Legacy Grants – These grants are targeted toward organizations in need of improvements and/or renovations to existing buildings, facilities, or grounds as well as organizations in need of new facilities. Awards are made in the amount of $10,000 to $75,000.

The Board of Directors meets one month after each quarter to review qualified grant applications. A schedule of the 2014 grant cycle can be found at the FLYF review page.
