Women’s Sports Foundation Seeks Applications for GoGirlGo! Grants in Pennsylvania


Founded in 1974 by tennis legend Billie Jean King, the Women’s Sports Foundation is dedicated to advancing the lives of girls and women through sports and physical activity. The foundation is now accepting applications for its Pennsylvania grant program, which is supported by the Hershey Foundation.

Through the GoGirlGo! initiative, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to nonprofit organizations operating sports/physical activity programs for girls between the ages of 5 and 13 that combine athletic instruction with the delivery of the GoGirlGo! curriculum by qualified adults. The initiative’s goal is to support efforts to give girls the confidence they need to become the next generation of healthy and successful leaders.

GoGirlGo! grants may be used for new or existing programs looking to increase athletic opportunities for an underserved population of girls, particularly economically disadvantaged girls and/or girls from populations with high incidence of health-risk behaviors. Funds requested may be used for athletic equipment, supplies, facility rental, league/tournament fees, travel, coaching, scholarships, and administration expenses. Funds may only be used for girls’ sports/physical activity programs.

To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and serve girls in Pennsylvania.

See the Women’s Sports Foundation website for complete program guidelines, information about past grant recipients, and application instructions.
