Our Grant Process

RunningBrooke gives priority to nonprofit organizations and classrooms that serve children who reside in the City of Alexandria and are at-risk and under-served. To make the greatest impact possible, we will consider programs that meet the following criteria:

  • Use exercise and/or movement before, during or after school to activate children’s brains to improve scholastic performance (Move2Learn).
  • Have articulated measurable outcomes consistent with our focus area.

While we prioritize applications from organizations who meet the above criteria, consideration will also be given to other groups and movement programs whose outcomes are measured by an increase in Positive Attitude, Focus, Confidence or Happiness/Emotional IQ.

Grant requests will be considered by a panel of judges based on the above criteria.

Check back soon for more information about the 2018 grant application process.
