Do you know of any grants that would fund a community group fitness class?
I am living in a small rural town in Utah, working at a non-profit organization. Another local and I began teaching a fitness class at the community center. I want to find a grant that would allow our local resident to get paid for her time. Also, equipment for our class would be great. We are low on resources.
I agree with Joanne. Grants are so hard to get...if you are successful, please feel free to let us here at IDEA know your outcome.
Wishing You Great Success!
The great thing is that you are a non profit, therefore you are eligible. You want to check grants given by corporations or associations. For example companies like cola cola, or the National Parks and Recs http://www.nrpa.org/achieve, or try http://www.aahperd.org/naspe/grants/grants/.
You also need to know how to write a grant for money.
Keep following threads to other potential association. Check with you local hospital. You may be able to piggyback or join forces on their community funding if they are non profit.
All the best,
