Diversity Grant Program

Join us in expanding the game

We are committed to encouraging and empowering the development of lacrosse participation in underrepresented communities. Please join us in this effort.

Our Diversity and Inclusion National Grant Program provides funding to qualified organizations that initiate or continue programs and projects that promote lacrosse participation and education.

“Located in the South Bronx, we have an extreme lack of resources, so this grant made playing competitive lacrosse a lot more accessible. The grant helped us in a variety of ways.”

-- Coach Dan Leventhal, Highbridge Green School
