National Fitness Foundation Succeeds in GlobalGiving's Accelerator, Becomes Recognized Partner of GlobalGiving

(October 2, 2019) National Fitness Foundation announced today that they have graduated from the GlobalGiving Accelerator program, gaining entry into the GlobalGiving marketplace and becoming a recognized partner of GlobalGiving. As part of the Accelerator, National Fitness Foundation successfully raised $7,600 from 64 unique individual donors to support their project, "Ensure all youth in America have access to sports!."

"We're thrilled to have National Fitness Foundation as part of our community. National Fitness Foundation has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we're committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective," said Alix Guerrier, CEO of GlobalGiving. "GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like National Fitness Foundation, knowing that they'll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work."

"There are countless statistics linking a youth's involvement in sport to both their emotional and physical health, and yet too many children don't have the resources to participate. No child should sit on the sidelines! The National Endowment for Youth Sports will raise more than $100M over the next decade to provide annual and ongoing grants for youth sports programs throughout the United States, and especially programs targeting girls and children in economically-disadvantaged areas. Join us.", said Heidi Webb, project leader at National Fitness Foundation. "Visit our project, 'Ensure all youth in America have access to sports!' to learn how even $10 can make a difference: We're $0 away from our overall goal of $7,600."
