Promoting Healthy, Active Lifestyles!
Wellness Inspired School Environments Grant Opportunity. Children spend more time in schools than in any other environment away from home. They also can consume up to 50 percent of their total daily calories at school. It is unlikely that childhood obesity rates can be lowered without the help of strong school-based policies and programs to support physical activity and healthy eating.
NEED FUNDS TO PURCHASE A CLIMBING WALL?
Don’t let funding challenges be a barrier to building your climbing wall. Everlast Climbing is proud to offer climbing wall funding support through a grant discount program. The Everlast Climbing Wall Demo-Site Program lets us help you fund your climbing wall. Visit our page to get more information. We are also pleased to offer How to Fund Your Climbing Wall: A Comprehensive Guide of Funding Opportunities, Ideas & Resources. The guide includes lists and information about national and state grants that provide funding for physical education equipment, like climbing walls. Other fundraising initiatives are also included in the guide. They are crowdfunding, restaurant fundraising, fundraising through sales, fundraising partnerships and do-it-yourself fundraising ideas. In addition, a multitude of resources, like sample letters and rationale statements, help physical educators achieve their funding goals.
The goal of the grant opportunities within this initiative is to make effective strategic investments in ongoing state, local, and tribal public policy issue campaigns in order to increase public policy impact on healthy weight and living among children. Voices for Healthy Kids is focusing efforts in schools, community, and out-of-school time/early care and education. Applications should support at least one Voices for Healthy Kids Policy Lever.
