Fall Amateur Sports Grant Opportunities from the Williamsburg Community Foundation

Williamsburg Community Foundation is accepting grant applications for the Benjamin R. Altshuler Memorial Fund for Amateur Sports. The deadline is September 23, 2017. Grants up to $5,000 are available to programs that meet the following criteria:

• To provide financial assistance to amateur sports programs, with a preference for wrestling, but also in other athletic programs that are not readily available to the public (i.e. fencing, lacrosse, boxing, marksmanship, crew, etc.). Wrestling programs must be part of the Bay Rivers District, or private schools (nonprofits) within the service area of the Bay Rivers District.

• Funds may be used to support tuition assistance, scholarships to players, expenses for officials, and/or for equipment and uniforms. Funds may not be used to support hotel rooms, travel or coaches' salaries.

• Preference will be given to applications which support low to moderate income children and youth.
