Boy Scouts of America Council Challenge Grant 2014
Thank you for your interest in the 2014 Boy Scouts of America Council Challenge grants. We have exhausted all funds for the 2014 grant cycle. Please check back next year for additional information.
National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has created a challenge grant program specifically for local Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Councils and shooting sports programs. Challenge grant funds should reflect planning to strengthen and increase BSA Council activities in shooting sports and commitment to the advancement of knowledge and understanding of shooting sports activities and firearms safety.
Learning proper skills and safety techniques at an early age often results in a lifetime interest in shooting sports and the outdoors.
Who may apply?:
Only grant applications submitted by and in the name of BSA Council(s) specific to providing shooting sports programs and activities and matching funds with equal to or exceeding grant request, earmarked specifically for shooting sports initiatives.
How Much Grant Funding is Available?:
A total of $50,000 will be available to qualifying BSA Councils for the purpose of supporting initiatives designed to providing shooting sports opportunities for new members and/or retain current members. Of this amount, the first 25 qualifying grant applicants are eligible to receive up to a maximum of $2,000 in matching grant funding from the NSSF. The amount of funding that qualifying applicants may be awarded shall be at the sole discretion of NSSF. NSSF's award decisions are final and non-reviewable.
