USA Lacrosse Announces Grant Awards to Support Local Initiatives


SPARKS, Md. — USA Lacrosse announced today that it has awarded 75 new national grants to support local groups and organizations in initiating and promoting lacrosse opportunities. The awards include equipment grants, player clinic grants and financial grants.

With most grants ranging between $1,000 and $5,000, the aggregate value of the awards during this grant cycle is $248,000 and raises USA Lacrosse's total investment in growth initiatives this year to $1.258 million.

“We’re excited to once again provide these grants to assist qualifying organizations across the country in making a greater impact in our sport,” said Eboni Preston-Laurent, senior director for diversity, equity, inclusion and opportunity at USA Lacrosse.

Funded through philanthropic contributions, annual grants are a strategic component of USA Lacrosse’s mission to provide structure and resources to support local growth initiatives and bring new people to the sport.

Local lacrosse organizations from all regions of the country and representing 31 states were among the newest award recipients. All application submissions were reviewed in detail by a panel of USA Lacrosse staff to verify organizational eligibility and need.

As the philanthropic arm of USA Lacrosse, the USA Lacrosse Foundation strives to generate financial resources and to create a culture of giving which directly impacts and supports the mission of USA Lacrosse to fuel the growth, enrich the experience and field the best national teams.
