Grants

Did you know that PPTC has given over $13,000 to runnings-related programs all around Brooklyn?

As part of its mission, Prospect Park Track Club strives to support running in Brooklyn β€” not just for its own members, but for other community groups through a biannual grants program. Some of our previous recipients include the Prospect Park Youth Running Club and the NYRR Striders program. In the past, recipients have used funds for new equipment, race fees, and travel expenses β€” however we are open to innovative and creative ideas from our applicants!

In each cycle, the Grants Program will consider requests up to $1,000 from organizations that promote running in Brooklyn, including (but not limited to) educational programs, after-school groups, and charities. Requesting groups do not need 501(c)(3) status. We have awarded grants exceeding $1000 in value for groups requesting race entries as part of their application.
