NRFC Wins $1500 Grant for Youth Soccer

The North Carolina Community Foundation and Robeson County Community Foundation host grant applications annually where they contribute funds to local programs that help the local community.

This year NRFC is proud to announce that we have been awarded a $1500 grant out of the Robeson County Community Foundation's Unrestricted Endowment Fund that will go directly towards helping subsidize the cost of high quality recreation soccer for the youth in our county.

Quality instructions and programming are typically expensive, often pricing out a majority of the people in our community.  $80-$120 per recreation season to participate in North Carolina's NCYSA programming is far too expensive for the members of our community, and with grants like these made possible by NCCF and RCCF, as well as through various sponsorships from local businesses, we are able to subsidize the cost of that same programming and offer it to our community members for a fee of $5-$20 per player.

We are very thankful to have been considered by the Robeson County Community Foundation to receive this grant and would like to thank all of the board members and grant committee members that selected our program to receive this honor.

For 150 children, our program undercharges members for the cost of registration.  For every 150 children the cost of NCYSA recreation registration is $2046.  By only charging players and families $5 during the early registration period, there is a loss of $8.64 per player that the club incurs for a total loss of $1296.  This year NRFC will take the $1500 grant provided by RCCF and NCCF and use that to cover the total loss incurred by offering high quality programming at an affordable rate, saving each player at least $8.64 in registration fee.

NCCF continues to give to many different non-profit organizations that support of community and it's programs.  If you are interested in finding out more about the NCCF or Robeson County Community Foundation then you can click the link below.
