HOW ARE YOU FUNDED?
As a small nonprofit with only one full-time staff member, we are funded by small grants, individual donations, special events and in-kind support. Many of our sports programs are taught by volunteers from women's sports teams at Philadelphia area colleges and universities. The number of programs and clinics we offer is entirely dependent on the amount of support we receive. Learn more about how you can support us.
