Inspiring Sports Grant Program
The Inspiring Sports Grants support organizations that provide underserved youth with the opportunity to participate in sports and fitness activities and teach life skills. Since the inception of the Grant program in 1988, nearly $2.1 million have been allocated to 233 youth organizations to support their sports programming and initiatives.
The grants are funded by the net proceeds of the annual Inspiring Sports Charity Golf Tournament, as well as direct contributions from many generous organizations like the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation, the Samerian Foundation, and United Water. Inspiring Sports Charity Golf Tournament has been presented annually since 1988 by Indiana Sports Corp.
