Foundation awards grants to local youth programs

The Fort Lupton Community Foundation recently awarded grants to local organizations to support youth programs from the Fort Lupton Youth Recreation Fund.  

 

A $2,500 grant was awarded to the Boys & Girls Club of Weld County, Fort Lupton Clubhouse for much needed athletics equipment that will help provide a more enriching Club experience. The Fort Lupton Clubhouse had a desperate need for new supplies for sports and recreation programs. The grant provided: hockey supplies, softball supplies, general team sports, and everyday recreation equipment. The balls, bats, gloves, pucks, jump roles, and hula hoops, are examples of supplies that will give Fort Lupton kids a greater variety of activities after school and in the summer.

A $500 grant was awarded to the Fort Lupton High School baseball team to help improve the look and shape of the baseball field by supporting a new batting cage net. Head Baseball Coach Stephen Flickinger stated "it is an honor for me to be chosen as the new head coach of FLHS baseball and I have high hopes for the future of this program. I also want our kids to be prideful of their field and be able to show visiting teams that FLHS baseball takes pride in its program." Prior to getting the new net, the previous net had many holes which allowed balls to get
through and posed a danger to the student athletes.  

The Fort Lupton Community Foundation accepts grant requests year round and has previously awarded grants of more than $35,000 to benefit:  

  • Fort Lupton Recreation Center

  • Blessings in a Bag

  • Fort Lupton School District 

  • Hope @ Miracle House

  • Fort Lupton Active Adult Program
