Girls Rock! Grants
Inspire & Achieve created its Girls Rock! Program to give girls particularly those in underserved communities, access to physical activity. Girls Rock! gives girls the confidence they need to become the next generation of healthy and successful leaders.
Girls Rock! grants provide funding for sports/physical activity programs for Girls ages 5-18. These programs must combine athletic instruction with the delivery of the GoGirlGo! Curriculum by qualified adults.
Girls Rock! grants support sports/physical activity programs seeking to add new or expand program participation opportunities for an under-served population, particularly economically disadvantaged girls from populations with high incidences of health-risk behaviors.
Funds requested may be used for athletic equipment, supplies, facility rental, league/tournament fees, travel, coaching, scholarships and/or program administration expenses. Funds may only be used for girls’ sports/physical activity programs.
