Gasol Foundation USA Awarded LA84 Foundation Grant
Gasol Foundation USA is excited to share that we have been awarded a grant from the LA84 Foundation!
The LA84 Foundation is a nationally recognized leader in support of youth sport programs and public education and advocates for the important role sports participation plays in positive youth development. Created with a share of the 1984 Olympic Games surplus, LA84 began operations in 1985 as a grant making and educational foundation. The foundation supports hundreds of non-profit youth sports organizations throughout Southern California annually, trains coaches, commissions research, convenes conferences and maintains the world’s premier Olympic and sports library collection.
LA84 gives special consideration to organizations and efforts that can impact at scale children and youth. They focus their support on organizations that view sports as an integral way to develop children and youth to be healthy, happy, and engaged individuals.
As part of the LA84 protocol, a site visit of our Galactic Sports program was conducted at Hoover Elementary School the following month after applying for the grant. One week after the visit, we learned that Gasol Foundation USA had been awarded the grant.
Funds from this grant will help with Galactic Sports program costs, including staffing, and purchasing of sports equipment.
We look forward to sharing with you all about the accomplishments that result from this LA84 grant!
