Finish Line Youth Foundation Announcing Funding for Programs and Facilities Improvements

The Youth Foundation is a philanthropic outlet for Finish Line to make a difference in the lives of youth in the communities it serves. The Youth Foundation provides programmatic grants for programs that give children the opportunity to participate in community-based youth athletic programs and camps that emphasize active lifestyles, especially programs that serve disadvantaged and special needs kids.  The Youth Foundation’s Legacy Grants fund new facilities improvements and/or renovations to existing buildings, grounds, and property. The foundation typically considers the potential impact of the program/project and the number of people who will benefit, an organization's fiscal responsibility and management qualifications, and the ability of an organization to obtain necessary additional funding to implement a program or project and to provide ongoing funding after the term of the grant is expired. Additionally, programs should be operating near Finish Line stores.

Grant Amount: Programmatic Grants range up to $5,000 and Legacy Grants up to $75,000.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations with audited financial statements that are not classified as private foundations.
