High School Wrestling Grants

by Brooke Williams
High school wrestling and youth sports grants are available from funding sources nationwide.

Participating on a high school sports team, such as wrestling, has many perks, according to Kaboose, an online parent and child resource. Teens not only obtain discipline while learning a sport, but their self esteem is also enhanced. High school athletes are also more likely to feel accepted by their peers, parents and teachers, according to Kaboose. For high schools looking to secure financial help to fund their wrestling program, although it may take time and planning, there are funding sources in the United States that are available to support youth sports.

Liberty Mutual's Responsible Sports Community Grant

Liberty Mutual, a nationwide insurance company, supports youth sports by financially assisting sports teams and leagues hosted by nonprofit organizations and school sports programs. Liberty Mutual awards Responsible Sports Community grants to large and small teams, as well as educational sports programs. These grants range between $2,500 and $5,000. To receive funding, all sports programs must recruit team supporters, such as parents, coaches and teachers, to take Responsible Sport Coaching and Responsible Sport Parenting coursework. To finalize the coursework, it's also required that these supporters take a quiz that is comprised of 10 questions. For each person that completes the coursework and quiz, the organization receives an accreditation point. The top 20 programs with the most credits receives funding.

Nike Responsibility

For many sports programs, the most costly items are the equipment and uniforms for the team members. Nike, a nationwide sports retail company, provides nonprofit organizations and school athletic programs with product donations, such as shoes, apparel and athletic gear. Nike does not provide unsolicited monetary funding to sports programs. All interested applicants must pass an eligibility quiz online. After an application is submitted, it takes about 60 days to learn if the product request is granted. Nike USA One Bowerman Drive Beaverton, OR 97005 nikebiz.com

Charlotte Martin Foundation

The Charlotte Martin Foundation supports youth athletic programs, such as high school wrestling teams, that operate in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Alaska. Grants range from $1,000 to $20,000, according to the Foundation, and one in 20 organizations that apply receive funding. Priority is given to underserved youth who have little access to community resources, according to the Foundation. Grant proposals can be submitted throughout the year, and typically, the Foundation doesn't fund overhead costs. Charlotte Martin Foundation charlottemartin.org
