The U.S. Soccer Foundation believes that all children should have opportunities to play soccer. To that end, in 2017 the foundation will begin accepting applications from organizations that are implementing innovative and/or non-traditional soccer programs in their communities.
Grants ranging between $30,000 and $90,000 over three years will be awarded for the purchase of soccer equipment and/or to cover operating expenses. In addition, awardees will be required to send one person to the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s Urban Soccer Symposium, April 28-30, 2017, in Washington, D.C. The foundation will cover expenses associated with attending the event.
To be eligible, organizations must be based in the United States; have IRS approved tax-exempt status; offer soccer-specific programming directly or through partnerships consistent with the RFP theme (innovative and/or non-traditional soccer programs); and meet insurance and grant agreement requirements.
