GoGirlGo Project to Fund Girls’ Sports Programs
Deadline: November 30, 2003

Administered by the Women’s Sports Foundation (<a href="http://www.womenssportsfoundation.org/">http://www.womenssportsfoundation.org/</a>), the GoGirlGo project is dedicated to the development and funding of girls’ sports programs that combine athletic skill instruction and programming with the delivery of educational information aimed at reducing risk behaviors that threaten the health and social advancement of girls aged 10 to 14 years. A total of $400,000 in grants will be awarded.

To be eligible, an organization must possess a demonstrated ability to deliver sport programming to girls between the ages of 10 and 14; be able to deliver an eight-week (minimum) program, with preference given to organizations working consistently with girls throughout the year; boast program leadership from experienced and committed adults; and have nonprofit program status. (If the program does not have nonprofit status, it may be possible to receive a grant under sponsorship of a local community foundation or nonprofit agency.)

Applicants must commit to participate in the GoGirlGo project educational curriculum, including completion of an attitudinal survey. The GoGirlGo education curriculum may be implemented prior to, during, or following receipt of a grant.

Complete program guidelines and application forms can be downloaded at the Women’s Sports Foundation Web site.
