The Board of Directors of the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame is accepting applications for funding from its Amateur Sports Development Fund. Deadline to submit an application for funding is May 8. Applications can be accessed at the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame website at buffalosportshallfame.com.
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-plus years, over 90 organizations have benefited from the fund with the total amount distributed being 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 that 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, contact Mike Buczkowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
