Ravens Youth Football Grant Applications Now Available

Posted Mar 20, 2013

The Baltimore Ravens Youth Football Grant Program provides assistance to qualifying nonprofit youth football programs in the state of Maryland. With the support of Under Armour, the grant is provided by the Ravens All Community Team Foundation (RACTF), the team’s charitable arm committed to improving, encouraging and enabling the healthy development of youth in our community.

Youth tackle football and flag football teams in Maryland are eligible to apply for an apparel grant containing over $1,000 in Under Armour jerseys, cleats and/or accessories.

The grant program continues the Ravens’ commitment to enhancing the quality of youth football in Maryland. Over the past few years, the organization has supported youth football through the donation of new uniforms to 18 Baltimore City public high schools (Ravens’ owner Steve Bisciotti and former LB Ray Lewis added new helmets). It has also helped fund the $1 million renovations of the stadiums at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Mervo High School, restoration of the City Springs School football field in East Baltimore and a $125,000 pledge to MedStar Sports Medicine to help raise concussion awareness.

On an annual basis the Ravens contribute more than 800 cleats to area football programs, donate weight-training equipment, host clinics for youth football coaches and salute area high school coaches through the Ravens Coach of the Week program. The team also holds clinics and flag football exhibitions for local youth, hosts 7-on-7 football tournaments for area high school teams, and showcases high school athletes in the Quarterback Challenge halftime passing competition at home games.

Ravens Youth Football Grant applications are available for submission at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/youthfootball and must be submitted no later than April 30. Grant decisions will be made in May.
