Finish Line Youth Foundation to Provide $500K to Communities of Color Through New Initiative

Finish Line is investing in the youth!

On March 10, The Finish Line Foundation announced the opening of its 2021 Louder Than Words grant program, according to Business Wire. 

The grant program will provide $500,000 in funds to communities of color within the Foundation’s Far Eastside neighborhood in Indianapolis as well as across the nation. It will directly support Finish Line’s stand against racial injustice and commitment to acting against hate, violence, and bigotry.

“Our company made a promise to fuel long-term solutions that make our organization, employees, and communities better,” said Marty Posch, Finish Line Youth Foundation president in a news release. “Through internal discussions with our team members, as well as members of leadership, we knew one way we could make a true impact was through highlighting and amplifying organizations that champion people of color and provide them with the resources and support they deserve.”

Qualifying organizations will have the opportunity to apply for grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 with the total overall commitment equaling $500,000. The Foundation is on a mission to support nonprofit organizations that offer programming or activities that place importance on commitment and capacity to deliver a positive impact to diverse communities.

Projects that will be considered include an active and healthy lifestyle and education, personal development, and improvements to existing grounds, property, and buildings or new facilities.
