Here’s a great grant opportunity for Portland Metro schools.
Nike is awarding at least $550,000 to Portland-area non-profits and schools. Grants are between $5,000 and $20,000, in the following areas:
- Environment: Creating or improving places for play or physical activity; enhancing home and community environments; promoting good stewardship of the earth and sustainable practices.
- Education: Educating families about the importance of physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices; improving children’s educational opportunities and experiences; providing education about environmentally sustainable practices.
- Inclusion: Supporting underrepresented or disadvantaged populations, with some emphasis on removing obstacles to participation in physical activity.
- Healthy Choices: Actively improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities; creating broad, positive behavioral change in communities; increasing use of environmentally sustainable practices that support health.
Kudos, Nike! Schools and Non-profits — we love working with you and have aggressive non-profit discounts. We’re more than happy to help you implement a Walker Tracker walking challenge at your school or non-profit that conforms to the grant guidelines.
