Gazelle Sports Foundation

About the Gazelle Sports Foundation:

Assisting Michigan in becoming one of the nation’s healthiest states.

The Gazelle Sports Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports individuals and organizations that implement education, programs and activities involving movement and fitness. The focus of the grants will be towards groups that have barriers to integrate fitness in their lives. The Foundation will prioritize grants that include lower income individuals and families.

Grants will be limited to geographic areas in Michigan in which Gazelle Sports operates retail stores.

Through the funds awarded, grantees will be expected to measure the following outcomes:

  • Number of participants
  • Increase in fitness activity

Through the Gazelle Sports Foundation, the grantees will include a broader segment of our communities population involved in movement and fitness therefore improving the overall health of our communities.

The grants will be on a bi- annual basis and grantees may re-apply.
