IOC Invites National Federations, Not-for-Profits to Apply for Active Society Grants

Four grants each worth 20,000 USD are available to organisations running effective Sport-for-All programmes.

The development grants were created by the IOC Sport and Active Society Commission to fulfill its mission to encourage people everywhere to participate in regular physical activity and to promote the health and social benefits of sport, within the framework of Olympic Agenda 2020, the International Olympic Committee’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement.

In 2016, the grants fall under three themes: sports legacy for the Olympic Games or other major events; community-wide promotion of physical activity, and the engagement of youth.

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), not-for-profit organisations, international and national federations (including IOC-recognised international federations) and National Olympic Committees (NOCs) are eligible to apply before the 15 May 2016 deadline for submissions.  Read more…
