The Chatham Athletic Foundation (CAF) has a long tradition of giving back to the community. The Chatham Athletic Foundation Grant Program is intended to support single or multipurpose athletic projects in Chatham Borough and/or Chatham Township that fit the purpose and mission of the Chatham Athletic Foundation. Grant awards given in the past have ranged from helping to fund large scale projects like the Lum Turf field restoration and the Shunpike field complex and lights, to smaller awards given to organizations like field hockey, fencing, and Golf
In keeping with tradition, The Chatham Athletic Foundation is pleased to announce its’ Spring 2012 Grant Program to support youth athletic projects in Chatham Borough and Chatham Township.
CAF invites you to submit a grant request by completing the CAF Spring 2012 Grant Program Application form found on the Chatham Athletic Foundation’s website: www.chathamathleticfoundation.org
The Spring 2012 Grant Program goal is to promote youth athletics (K-8th Grade) by obtaining funding to improve Chatham Township’s and Chatham Borough’s, Chatham Recreation’s, and/or Chatham board of Education’s athletic facilities, youth sports programs, and safety and sports education. Submissions should include evidence that the project addresses a significant need with clearly defined objectives, and a cost-effective budget. Higher consideration may be given to projects that impact multiple sports and a large number of youth athletics.
If the project requires approval from the Borough Council, Township committee, Board of Ed, Recreation, etc., that approval must be provided with the application. If awarded, the grant funding will pay for the costs of the project including, but not limited to, equipment, supplies, construction, labor, etc. The Chatham Athletic Foundation typically considers proposals ranging from $1000 to $5000. Grants will be reviewed by the Board of Trustees and awarded on or before June 16, 2012.
