Finish Line Youth Foundation Grants

The philanthropic effort of an athletic apparel merchandiser, the Finish Line Youth Foundation, distributes money to nonprofit organizations to support athletic and wellness programs focusing on living a healthy lifestyle, bolstering confidence and leadership skills, and teaching the importance of teamwork.

Generally, grants range from $1,000 - $5,000 although the foundation may occasionally make significant, larger grants to maximize the funding impact in the foundation's areas of interest. The foundation is particularly interested in:

  • Organizations providing opportunities for participation for children and young adults age 18 and under;
  • Organizations whose activities provide direct services to individuals and produce tangible results, rather than those that are policy oriented;
  • The potential impact of the program/project and the number of people who will benefit;
  • The organization's fiscal responsibility and management qualifications;
  • The ability of an organization to obtain the necessary additional funding to implement a program or project and to provide ongoing funding after the term of the grant has expired; and
  • Programs operating near Finish Line stores.
