Joy of Sports Foundation (JSF) Guidelines for Requests for "OTHER" Funding (other than Micro Grants & Scholarships that are addressed elsewhere on the website) - such as ads in programs or other financial support requested by youth and interscholastic sports-related organizations.

As one of the purposes of JSF is to initiate new recreational sports and assist with the maintenance and expansion of existing sports, such requests will be considered in accord with the guidelines below.  Though no single factor will be dispositive, the factors to be considered will include:

-Does the request impact a sports-related organization in Derry Township?

-Has a similar request been granted previously by JSF to the same organization? Or is this a first time request? 

-How many  youth and adults are served by the organization requesting the funding?

-For what purpose is the request being made? 

-Does the request provide any opportunity for heightened visibility for either JSF or the requesting group?

-Does the request serve a segment of the youth population that has been underserved?

-Is the dollar amount being considered consistent with prior similar requests?

-How well does the request fit with the mission of JSF?
