Manchester, NH – The U.S. Soccer Foundation has awarded a grant to the Inti Academy to support our inner city mission and initiatives.
The U.S. Soccer Foundation, the major charitable arm of soccer in the United States, announced that it has awarded 48 grants totaling more than $2.4 million to non-profit organizations serving youth in underserved areas across 21 states and the District of Columbia.
The Foundation strives to assist and grow the sport of soccer, as well as improve the well-being of children in under-resourced communities, by awarding grants to support all aspects of the game. Specifically, non-profit organizations that provide children with the opportunity to play soccer and live a healthy lifestyle are awarded grants to support their programming and field-building initiatives.
Of the 48 grant awards distributed by the U.S. Soccer Foundation, 29 were given as part of the Safe Place to Play program. Supported by adidas and FieldTurf, the Safe Places to Play program develops or enhances field spaces in underserved areas to provide safe places for children to play. To date, the Foundation has helped create or improve over 1,100 safe places for children nationwide.
"We are thrilled and honored to be selected for this prestigious and generous grant," said Inti Chairman of the Board, Max Latona. "Our staff and board have worked tirelessly during the past four years since our founding. This milestone will help us provide for the children we serve now and expect to for years to come."
“The U.S. Soccer Foundation believes that every child should have the opportunity to enjoy the game of soccer in an environment that is safe and promotes positive development,” said Ed Foster-Simeon, president and CEO of the U.S. Soccer Foundation. “We are happy to support organizations that, through impactful community-based programs, harness the power of soccer to improve the well-being of children.”
Support for the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s grant process is provided by the Foundation’s corporate partners, including Eurosport, FieldTurf, Hunter Industries, Musco Sports Lighting, PEVO Sports and Sport Court. Since its inception in 1994, the U.S. Soccer Foundation has now awarded more than $59 million in grant awards to non-profit organizations in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
