The Richmond Mayor’s Community Fund is currently accepting grant applications for 2018. These grants will be given solely to youth sports teams and leagues in Richmond, California. These teams include traditional team sports such as football, baseball/softball, basketball, soccer and swimming, as well as martial arts and dance. The grants can be used for general operating support as well as capacity-building programs, such as purchasing team uniforms, training for coaches, travel for team members, etc.

How Much is Available?

Grants will be awarded in the range of $500 to $3,000. Please note that the committee will seek to award the optimal amount of funding to grant recipients so the average amount will likely be less than $3,000. An organization may receive only one grant within a twelve month period.
