Grant Writer Request #11172017W

Primary Purpose:
We own a business which is a basketball training program in which we have over 200 clients. We have decided that we want to do away with the business and build a facility for our newly formed nonprofit organization. Our mission is to empower our youth with life skills through sports. Our vision is to take inner city youth and give them life skills through sports. These skills include, but are not limited to, leadership, teamwork, confidence, decision making, problem solving, self-awareness and creative thinking. Although sports are great, we must educate our youth to understand, at an early age, sports are simply an outlet and a means to an end. By introducing our youth to sports we can grab their attention and trust. By doing this we will have an easier time showing them why education should be valued over sports. At an early age, most kids are interested in sports, or just being active. However, not all kids are highly interested in school. We must build the bridge that connects this divide. Our attention is focused on children between the ages of 8-11. During this time children are being molded and are coming to a crossroad in life. We plan to be available and mentor the children before that first mistake or loss of interest in their education starts. In addition to reaching out to our normal clientele, the facility will allow us to handle a larger group of young men and women in the community.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
We would like to open a community center. The community center will have a basketball court, batting cages for baseball and a classroom for after school care and mentoring programs. To generate revenue we want this to be a membership based community center(ex: YMCA) for all athletes of all sports to train under one roof. The cost for the facility are listed below.
Total Cost-$1,200,000
If anything we would love to get the grant for the land first if the million is unattainable.

We have had our first event this past August. We had a backpack drive. We used our connections to bring in a NBA player to talk to the kids about education. We have our second event in December. It is hard for us to provide a service with limited access to any facilities in the area. Our first event was profiled on the local ABC news station.
Current Revenue:
Presently, we are using our training services for a for profit business which we want to diminish. The only revenue is what we earn from the camps because of our limited access to facilities.
