We serve our local at-risk youth in partnership with dedicated schools, recreation, and youth organizations by providing new sports and recreation equipment to create opportunities for development of their physical and mental health, confidence and character, teamwork and respect for others, and academic expectations and personal responsibility.
To provide every at-risk youth the opportunity to participate in sports.
The overwhelming demand for new sporting goods and equipment from 73+ recipient organizations far exceeds what our annual operating income budget is able to provide. Through increased corporate and individual sponsorships and donations, The Buddy Fund Board is committed to increasing our income budget to $350,000 by 2021. With every dollar raised we are able to almost double our spend on sporting goods and equipment.
