--- Phoenix Coyotes Charities Chairman John Breslow announced today that Coyotes Charities has launched its grant application process for the 2009-10 season.
Starting today, Arizona non-profits are able to apply for Coyotes Charities grants that will be distributed at the beginning of the 2009-2010 season. Last season, Coyotes Charities granted out over $300,000 to local non-profits.
“Once again, Coyotes fans and other members of the community showed incredible generosity to Coyotes Charities this past year,” said Sarah Finecey, Executive Director of Coyotes Charities and Coyotes Director of Community Relations. “It’s because of their hard work and willingness to give that we now have the opportunity to help support other deserving non-profit organizations throughout Arizona.”
To be eligible, organizations must be classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity and focus on improving the lives of children in the areas of healthcare, education, cultural arts or youth sports.
Grant applications are available online at http://coyotes.nhl.com/community/grantapplication.htm
and must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 10.
Coyotes Charities has granted nearly $1.7 million to youth-oriented organizations in Arizona including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Valley Youth Theatre, Special Olympics Arizona and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Coyotes Charities, a registered 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life throughout Arizona communities by supporting non-profit organizations that promote healthcare, education, cultural arts and sports-related programs for children.
