Richmond youth sports leagues and teams are encouraged to apply for a new grant program funded by the Richmond Mayor’s Office through the Richmond Community Foundation (RCF).
Richmond Mayor Tom Butt re-launched the grant program last year to support community needs not otherwise met by the city or other donors, according to RCF.
This year, grants are going specifically to youth sports programs in Richmond, including those participating in football, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer and swimming as well as martial arts and dance.
Grants can be used for general operating support as well as capacity-building programs, such as purchasing team uniforms, training for coaches, travel for team members, etc., RCF said.
To be eligible, your program must be a nonprofit or must partner with a nonprofit that serves as its fiscal sponsor.
