Congratulations to our August 2022 grantee! We chose this project for its work with young athletes in our community. The grant will help them purchase safety gear such as helmets as well as support fees and other necessary expenditures.
In the coaches own words, "East Side Wrestling Club was started as a non-profit here in MN in 2011. We focus on offering a high-quality wrestling experience to local kids (focused on St Paul, Minneapolis, and the surrounding suburbs) regardless of financial ability to participate. Our fees are typically about 10-20% of a typical club, and we waive/reduce fees for anyone who requests. This past season had about 40% of our families paying dues. We are 100% volunteer-run, so 100% of our proceeds go back to supporting our community.
Over this past year we have helped fund some local wrestlers to attend national tournaments, we have funded numerous USA Wrestling memberships & tournament entry fees, and we have financially partnered with St Paul Johnson High School for a full upgrade of their wrestling room space."
