Lynx Foundation Accepting Monthly Grant Applications
The Minnesota Lynx Foundation and Lynx FastBreak Foundation announced that it will be accepting applications from non-profit organizations for grants for the upcoming 2015 WNBA season. The application process will be open until May 1, 2015.
“Grants provided by the Minnesota Lynx Foundation are a phenomenal opportunity for our organization to give back to the community,” said Timberwolves and Lynx President Chris Wright. “The Twin Cities community has always supported our organization and this is one way we can assist local organizations in fulfilling their missions.”
During the 2015 WNBA season, the Minnesota Lynx will give out $36,000 spread between eight separate grants to organizations which focus on a specific area of charity. Four of the eight grants, totaling $20,000, will be given from the Minnesota Lynx Foundation to fund breast cancer research and support programs throughout the state of Minnesota. The remaining four grants ($16,000) will be donated from the Minnesota Lynx FastBreak Foundation to support hands-on programs which positively impact Minnesota youth.
