Off the Sideline works with our trusted community partners to identify youth most in need of social interaction and positive role models and to ensure money is going where it is needed most. In turn, our partners value us for the resources we bring to their families, helping advance their missions of creating more resilient youth and stronger communities. Each of our community partners is selected based on their proven record of successfully serving disenfranchised communities.

At this time, scholarship funding is only available to families coming through our community partner referral process. We are unable to accept applications from the general public.

Read about our community partners to learn if you are eligible for a scholarship. If you are affiliated with one of these organizations but unsure who to speak to about scholarship services, please contact us.

Interested in Partnering Opportunities?

Contact us if you are a community-based organization that serves low-income families and are interested in partnering opportunities. While we value and support private sports teams and clubs through our scholarship awards, we do not directly partner with these programs at this time.
