There is no better time to give back to the community than the holiday season!
This morning we had the privilege of hosting the Play It Forward Grant Program recipients at Bell Bank Park to award the MVP and Rookie grants and celebrate all of the great work being done to serve underprivileged communities.
The Play it Forward Grants Program recognizes the rising cost of youth sports has left some families and communities behind.
Play it Forward grants provide funding to 501c3 non-profit organizations who lack the resources to pay for youth sports and activities for the populations they serve. Grants are available to qualifying organizations in low-income areas within Maricopa County, Arizona serving large numbers of families and children. Individual grants can be used by each organization for where it is needed most.
The following organizations earned grants for 2022:
- Opportunity 4 Kids (MVP Grant Awardee)
- Reaching Teen Hearts
- Mikey’s League
- Boys & Girls Club of the Valley
- Ability 360
- Square One AZ
- Pass it On
Thank you Bell Bank for making this funding available and helping us further impact children in Maricopa County through nonprofit collaboration!
