Ten applications have been selected for PLN 20,000 grants and twenty-three applications – for PLN 7,500 grants in the first edition of the Grupa Azoty START programme. Financial support of over PLN 370,000 in total will go to 33 entities in six provinces.
The funding will go to schools and organisations providing sports activities and training to children and youth between the ages of 5 and 19. The funding of PLN 7,500 may be spent to purchase and label sports equipment or sportswear and training clothes. The PLN 20,000 grants should additionally be applied towards training and coaching activities.
The first edition of the Grupa Azoty START programme shows there is great demand for initiatives supporting sports activities for children and youth. I am confident the funds provided by Grupa Azoty will contribute to further development of small sports clubs and school teams, facilitating the START for young athletes, hopefully future Polish champions,’ said Tomasz Hinc, President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty S.A.
