The fund has been assisting Western New York amateur athletic groups since 1993. It was originally set-up to assist the World University Games, however over the past 20+ years, over 90 organizations have benefited from the fund with the total amount distributed over $100,000. Money is awarded to amateur athletes, teams and organizations seeking financial assistance to foster the pursuit of a higher level of athletic achievement.

The committee will only grant monies for purposes OTHER THAN supplementing an organization’s normal operating budget, and awards can be granted for repeat applications from athletes, teams or organizations provided the purpose for the request is NOT THE SAME AS THE PRIOR AWARD.

For questions about the application or applying for 2016 funds please contact Mike Buczkowski at gbshofasdf@gmail.com. Deadline for 2016 funds will be posted at a later date.
