GameChangers - What's your Pitch?
Do you know of a project that uses sports to build communities and transform lives, but is in need of a ‘home court’?
GAMECHANGERS are disruptors, groups and individuals who use sports to address community issues, raise awareness and create real social change. For them it is not about winning a game, it is about using the game to change lives. We have the funding for the design and construction of innovative facilities that impact the lives of others, and are looking for bold new concepts in sports spaces that will push the envelope but are successful catalysts for social change. We don’t want to play it safe (pun intended), but look to support the raw innovation and creative spirit of projects that normally don’t often receive the support from traditional granting agents.
GAMECHANGERS is a rolling grant program, with a first round deadline of April 15, 2009. Entries received by this day will be entered into ALL of the rounds, eligible for up to 70% percent of design and construction funds to realize the project.
