For the second year in a row, Bowls USA has participated in “loyalty programs” and “incentives” for 100% Bowls USA clubs. The Grant Program has been the appropriate way to “give back” to those clubs that support Bowls USA.
A committee, consisting of Alice Birkinshaw, BowlsUSA Treasurer, Ginger Harris, councilor (PIMD), and Glorianne Mather, councilor (CED), administered the program for 2017. We are pleased to report that 18 clubs from 6 divisions expressed interest and be received funding in 2017.
The total amount of grant funds available for 2017 was $7,500. After review of all Grant Requests, the Committee has awarded the following grants:
Bowls USA is stronger because of the support of all of its members, and we hope that these funds will help 100% clubs share our sport with their communities. We look forward to hearing about clubs' successes in recruiting members and improving their playing conditions.
The Mission of the Grant Program is to provide funds for 100% Bowls USA clubs to promote club development and to assist recruiting and retaining members. Grant funds may be used for projects that are intended to attract new members or to improve the playing experience of the club. We also specified that funds could not be used for food and/or refreshments.
