Women’s Sports Foundation Invites Applications for GoGirlGo Grant Program
Deadline: November 30, 2004

The GoGirlGo! Grant and Education Program is dedicated to the development and funding of girls’ sports/physical activity programs that combine athletic instruction and programming with the delivery of educational information aimed at reducing risk behaviors.

Administered by the Women’s Sports Foundation, the GoGirlGo program provides financial assistance to sports and physical activity programs seeking to add new or expanded participation opportunities for an underserved population of girls, particularly economically disadvantaged girls and/or girls from populations with high incidences of health-risk behaviors.

To be eligible for grants through the program, organizations, agencies, and schools must agree to participate in the GoGirlGo! educational curriculum. The curriculum is available free of charge from the Women’s Sports Foundation. Applicants must have nonprofit status and possess the demonstrated ability to deliver girls’ sport/physical activity programming to girls in third to eighth grade.

The program will award a total of $200,000. To date in 2004 the average grant awarded has been $7,500. Funds requested may be used for athletic equipment, supplies, facility rental, league/tournament fees, travel, coaching, scholarships, and/or program administration expenses. Funds may only be used for girls’ sports/physical activity programs.

Complete program guidelines, application instructions, and an FAQ are available at the Women’s Sports Foundation Web site.
