What is it about?
Create stronger communities in the Netherlands through the power of sport
If your organization delivers projects in Amsterdam, Amersfoort, Hilversum or Utrecht with the aim of helping the underserved communities to become more physically active, we can support you with a grant of up to €20,000.
Today's physical inactivity disproportionately impacts those in the most underserved
and underrepresented communities. People from marginalized backgrounds - as well as girls and kids with different abilities - face even more challenges to participating in play and sport and have fewer opportunities to do so.
However, we know that sport and physical activity have a positive impact on social inclusion, health and also contribute to individuals' self -confidence and social skills. That’s why тhe Nike Community Impact Fund (NCIF) provides financial support to local programs and grassroots organizations that promote active and inclusive communities in the Netherlands.
If you have a project that delivers sports, play and physical activity, to the most vulnerable groups in the communities of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Hilversum and Amersfoort, send us your application!
Selected projects can receive financial support ranging from a minimum of €5,000 to a maximum of €20,000. A total budget of €125.000 is available.
Nike employees leverage their local expertise, plus training on how to assess grant applications, to recommend which organizations to fund.
Nonprofits, community organizations and clubs from the cities of Amsterdam, Amersfoort, Utrecht and Hilversum can submit projects.
Only projects that address people from marginalized communities and offer social value through sports, play or physical activity will be funded. Commercial projects will not be accepted for this call for projects. Partnerships between sporting and other associations and initiatives are an extra advantage. Applicants may engage in a partnership with a school or local authorities. It is however not possible for schools or local authorities themselves to apply.
