Mini-Grant Funding

Want to help keep folks in Richmond moving? Do you have a health and fitness program that encourages your neighborhood to get out and get active, but you’re a little short on funding? Then you’re in luck, Sports Backers Keep It Moving mini-grants support programs that are increasing opportunities for physical activity in underserved communities across the Richmond Metropolitan Service Area. If you’ve got a project or a program you know can make Richmonders more active, our mini-grants can help!

By applying for the funding, you could increase the longevity of your program, and be able to afford some much needed material – like equipment, healthy snacks and other items that can lend to the success of your program.  So, if you’ve got a program that is assisting a community in need this mini-grant may be for you!  Before applying, make sure that your program meets our basic criteria:

  • It is offered for at least 12 weeks.
  • It takes place in an underserved community.
  • The program increases opportunities for community members to be active.

If you think your program qualifies, please check back later this summer when we will reopen the application.  For more information on the Keep It Moving mini-grants, contact our Director of Community Outreach, Jacki Quinlan: [email protected]
