School Grant Programs

Michigan Running Foundation Grant Program for Schools.

The Michigan Running Foundation was founded in 1998 with the purpose of supporting and encouraging youth running in Michigan. One of the main ways we do this is by supporting High School and Middle Schools Cross Country and Track programs. All of us on the Board at the Michigan Running Foundation began our love of running by participating in school sport programs. We see first hand how important these programs are. Our goal is to help establish new programs at schools that don't currently have them, and support schools and individual athletes, to go to summer camps.

If we can support your school in these ways, and others, please download and mail us the grant application form(s) below.

Michigan Running Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
