The foundation administers three grant programs: programmatic grants, legacy grants, and founder’s grants.
1) Programmatic Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded to nonprofit organizations for community-based athletic programs and to established camps that teach active lifestyle and team-building skills.
2) Legacy Grants up to $75,000 will be awarded to support new facilities improvements and/or renovations to existing buildings, grounds, and property.
3) Founder’s Grants up to $25,000 will be awarded for emergency needs that are keeping the organization from providing current services, such as natural disasters or other unforeseen fiscal circumstances. To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for kids to participate in community-based youth athletic programs or a camp that emphasizes active lifestyles, especially programs that serve disadvantaged and special-needs kids. (Note: This is only available to communities with a Finish Line store and Ocala has one in the Paddock Mall.) http://www.finishline.com/store/corporate/gadgets/guidelines.jsp
