Swim Organizations: Apply for a Grant Online

BH-JSL is currently soliciting grants on a rolling basis for projects starting in the Fall of 2012 through the Summer of 2013. 

Grants will be given to organizations that further the mission of the BH-JSL. Primarily these grants will be given to groups that hold learn-to-swim programs for “at-risk” youth. School programs, After-school programs, church groups, and others are invited to apply. Other proposals may be considered if they further the mission of the foundation. 

To APPLY, click on the links below to the Grant Application Information and the Standard Budget Form. 

Criteria of success for Learn-to-Swim programs 

  1. Competitive pricing per swimmer trained
  2. Alternative or creative methods of funding (i.e. other grants, volunteer instructors)
  3. To be considered “WATER SAFE,” all participants in learn-to-swim classes must be able to safely and independently swim 25 yards on their front and back and complete the skills equivalent to the American Red Cross Level 3 (certain skills, such as head-first entry may be omitted)
