Houston, TX, January 23, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Bridge The Gaps, a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization connecting underprivileged athletics and education, announces a grant receipt from Good Sports, an organization creating opportunities through sports and physical activity for kids through donations of brand-new sports equipment, apparel, and footwear.
Bridge The Gaps targets underprivileged and at-risk students proven to succeed in academic environments and provides ancillary funding opportunities that allow them to utilize partial scholarships.
"The grant from Good Sports comes just in time for some of our newer projects targeting underfunded athletic programs," said Omar Durham, President and CEO of Bridge The Gaps. "Our approval of the grant is another opportunity for Bridge The Gaps to position our student athletes for success in areas where they were straining to compete. This includes often neglected sports such as golf, tennis, soccer, which are often underfunded or not offered at all," Durham continues.
Bridge The Gaps supports a variety of programs that can utilize grant funding through local, state, and federal contracting opportunities.
"Our partnership programs with The King Football Academy and The Texas Golf Academy will have greater success rates with the Good Sports grant," Durham concludes.
