Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports Grants Available to Help Fund Youth and School Sports Programs
Deadline: November 30, 2009

Responsible Sports, a philanthropic program of insurance company Liberty Mutual, is accepting applications from youth sports organizations in the United States to participate in its Responsible Sports Community Grant program.

Teams and organizations compete in one of three categories for a Responsible Sports grant: large division (two hundred or more players), small division (under two hundred players), and educational groups (school athletic programs).

To be eligible for the program, league administrators must first register their youth sports organization at the Responsible Sports Web site. Then, coaches, parents, administrators, and youth sports supporters can participate in the Responsible Sports Parenting and/or Responsible Coaching coursework. Participants who pass the ten-question Responsible Sport Parenting quiz or Responsible Coaching quiz can credit the successfully passed quiz to their favorite youth sports league.

Twenty organizations with the most credited certifications will each earn a $2,500 Responsible Sports Community Grant to help fund their team, league, or school program.

To be eligible, organizations must be registered nonprofit youth sport organizations recognized by the governing bodies of their sport(s). Organizations must serve the community at large and must be open to the general public.

See the Responsible Sports Web site for complete program information.
