Trailblazers Live, Learn, and Play grants accepting applications

The Portland Trail Blazers Foundation‘s Live, Learn, and Play grants are live and accepting applications until April 13. All of the grants are for up to $10k in unrestricted funding. Specifically, they have the following opportunities available:

 

  • LIVE Grant (environment): General operating support or program funding is available to 501c3 organizations that connect underserved youth to the environment for education, preservation, and employment.

 

  • LEARN Grant (education): General operating support or program funding is available to 501c3 organizations supporting youth to graduate from high school or ensure they hit the many academic benchmarks critical to achieving this goal.

 

  • PLAY Grants,presented by Nike (movement / sport / physical activity): General operating support or program funding is available to 501c3 organizations promoting access to sport and physical activity for youth and families. (This was formally our ‘Sport for Health’ grant).

 

All of the grant streams will prioritize organizations that focus on historically underserved populations, have not received funding from the Trail Blazers in the past year, are geographically diverse (priority will go to programs outside of Portland), and directly serve youth and families.
