GameOn! Grant

IronPigs Charities and GameOn! Lehigh Valley offer Youth Athletic Facility Improvement Grants that provide funding to help build, renovate and improve athletic facilities, related amenities and/or significant equipment for any youth sport organization in the Lehigh Valley region.

In 2017, five grants were awarded for $25,624.  Over the two years that the Game On! initiative has existed from IronPigs Charities, nine projects have been funded for a grand total of $66,624.  Government entities, youth or community athletic nonprofits are all eligible.

Maintenance of the facility following the renovation is the sole responsibility of the municipality or organization that owns, manages and utilizes the facility.
