Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $7,500 to USA lacrosse organizations for education and lacrosse programs for urban and at-risk youth ages 19 and under. Funding is intended for youth-centered programming that fosters character-building, improved health, and academic excellence. Programs must serve and give special emphasis to groups or communities in need.

Programs must:

  • Provide lacrosse programming for at-risk youth ages 19 and under, with life skills enrichment (Examples: tutoring, mentorship, college guidance, character education etc.).
  • Demonstrate financial need.
  • Deliver a minimum 8-week lacrosse program with preference given to organizations working consistently with at-risk youth throughout the year.
  • Commit to growing the game effectively and responsibly using US Lacrosse national standards and best practices.
  • Demonstrate successful efforts to recruit and retain a diverse population of individuals and committed leadership.
  • Not be a member of the Urban Lacrosse Alliance or receive a National Diversity Grant within the past two calendar years.

US Lacrosse is particularly interested in:

  • Organizations providing opportunities for ongoing lacrosse participation.
  • Organizations whose activities provide direct services to individuals and produce tangible results, rather than those that are policy oriented.
  • The potential impact of the program/project and the number of people who will benefit.
  • The organization's fiscal responsibility and management qualifications.
  • The ability of an organization to obtain the necessary additional funding to implement a program or project and to provide ongoing funding after the term of the grant has expired.
  • Programs that conduct necessary outcome and metrics data at two or more time intervals throughout the year.
  • Programs that provide long-term play opportunities beyond elementary school. 
  • Nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) designation.
