|Funds for summer youth programs prioritizing equity & health. |
Today the Foundation launches CAMBRIDGE WINS, Sports Equity Grants—a summer pilot initiative aimed at empowering young athletes throughout the city and supporting summer programming that keeps Cambridge youth healthy and active.
Created in partnership with Cambridge natives and sports enthusiasts, Joe Bradlee and Matt Meyersohn, the initiative will infuse $20,000 in CCF funds to help address these inequities and make healthy activities accessible to all youth, regardless of socio-economic status.
“As we think about the wellbeing of our youth, the need for positive, enriching activities like summer sports is a top priority,” said Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui. “I want to thank the Cambridge Community Foundation for listening to community members and for building on their investment in our city’s young people.”
Coaches, athletes, and leaders of recreation programs across the city are invited to apply now through July 8 for grants of $500 to $1,000 to support summer programming for youth who might not be able to participate due to financial or family constraints.
