Philly Youth Sports Fund

The Philadelphia Youth Sports Collaborative (PYSC) is currently accepting proposals for the Philly Youth Sports Fund. Applications are due May 15, 2024. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to eligible organizations for program-related needs by June 30, 2024.

The Purpose

The Philly Youth Sports Fund provides support to small, community-based organizations who are offering sport and physical activity programs to a vulnerable youth population. Grants will be issued through an equitable process with the intent of increasing accessibility to and improving the quality of existing programs.  Ideally, providers offer an introductory or “entry-level” recreational component within their programs, so that more young people are able to participate in localized, instructional sports opportunities.


  • Eligible applications must be a 501c3 or LLC with an annual budget of less than $150,000. 
  • Eligible programs are defined as organized sport, and physical activity programs serving kids aged 5-18 years old. 
  • Eligible organizations MUST have a valid EIN/TIN.
  • A completed  IRS Form W-9.
