Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to USA lacrosse organizations and teams for programs to create new or expand existing Lacrosse opportunities for young women in underserved populations. Funding is intended to increase access to lacrosse for girls of color ages 19 and under. Funding is also intended for programs that combine lacrosse instruction with leadership development and life skills programming.

Programs must:

  • Provide girls lacrosse programming for undeserved youth ages 19 and under with life skills enrichment and leadership development (Examples: tutoring, mentorship, college guidance, character education etc.).
  • Deliver a minimum 8-week lacrosse program with preference given to organizations working consistently with girls 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.
