Women’s Sports Foundation Invites Applications for GoGirlGo! Pennsylvania Grant Program
Deadline: June 29, 2012

The Women’s Sports Foundation created its GoGirlGo! program to give girls, particularly those in underserved communities, access to physical activity. GoGirlGo! is designed to give girls the confidence they need to become the next generation of healthy and successful leaders.

GoGirlGo! grants provide funding for sports/physical activity programs that combine athletic instruction for girls with the delivery of the GoGirlGo! curriculum by qualified adults. Grants support sports/physical activity programs seeking to add new or expand program participation opportunities for an under-served population of girls, particularly economically disadvantaged girls and/or girls from populations with high incidences of health-risk behaviors.

With sponsorship from the Hershey Company, the GoGirlGO! Pennsylvania Grant program will award a total of $40,000 in funding to organizations in Pennsylvania working to enhance the lives of girls 5 to 13 years of age through sports and physical activity.

To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations with programs that serve girls in Pennsylvania; demonstrate their ability to deliver sports/physical activity programming to girls ages 5 to 13 through experienced and committed leadership; deliver a minimum twelve-week sports/physical activity program with preference given to organizations working consistently with girls throughout the year; and commit to implement the GoGirlGo! curriculum, including completion of a program leader survey. The GoGirlGo! curriculum may be implemented following receipt of a grant.

The maximum grant amount is $10,000 per program. Funds may be used for athletic equipment, supplies, facility rental, league/tournament fees, travel, coaching, scholarships, and/or program administration expenses.
