The Ravens Foundation, Inc. is committed to improving, encouraging and enabling the healthy development of youth in the Baltimore area, as well as other parts of the state of Maryland. For the 14th-consecutive year, the foundation is executing the Ravens PLAY 60 Grant, which provides funding of up to $10,000 to qualifying nonprofit organizations that create and/or continue programs or projects promoting physical fitness and nutrition education.
The grant program continues the foundation's commitment to increasing physical activity among area youth and seeks to encourage healthy youth activities. The Ravens will consider funding requests that meet the following criteria:
Organizations that submit requests must be a 501(c)(3) organization.
Programs or projects must be directed at youth (5-18) and must promote physical fitness and/or nutrition education.
Nonprofits must illustrate a programming component with measurable goals in order to be considered. Through the Ravens PLAY 60 Grant, the Foundation will not consider funding for the construction of buildings/fields/etc.
The 2020 PLAY 60 Grant helped fund a variety of projects, such as interscholastic athletic programs for students with disabilities, running clubs, boxing training and after-school mentorship programs, all of which work to increase physical activity and nutrition awareness among local youth.
