FLYF Mission Statement
The Finish Line Youth Foundation strives to make a difference in the lives of youth in the communities where employees and customers live, work and play.
We accomplish this by being good stewards of the funds we receive and by supporting youth programs that are effective and inclusive. The Finish Line Youth Foundation financially supports opportunities for participation in youth programs that place an importance on youth development and an active lifestyle.
In 2006, the Finish Line Youth Foundation completed a year of mission and process review resulting in the new Mission Statement above and a new focus for giving back to the communities in which we operate our stores. In general, the Youth Foundation supports qualified, non-profit organizations that provide community based access to athletics for kids under the age of 18, as well as camps that give kids the chance to be active, especially camps that provide services to kids who are disadvantaged or disabled.
The Finish Line Youth Foundation is currently accepting grant proposals from qualifying programs/organizations on a quarterly basis. Please see the Review Procedures page for more information.
