SWB Colorado Receives LibertyGives Grant
Soccer Without Borders (SWB) is proud to announce that it has received a $17,833 grant from the LibertyGives Foundation to support the SWB program in Greeley, Colorado. This will be the fourth year in a row the LibertyGives Foundation has supported Soccer Without Borders’ work in Colorado.
The LibertyGives Foundation was created by Liberty Media, which owns a broad range of media, communications, and entertainment businesses to encourage corporate giving. The foundation’s goal is to “support charities that address the needs of underprivileged and at-risk youth in Colorado, with a focus on proactive and preventative services.”
“The LibertyGives Foundation recognizes the vital role that Soccer Without Borders plays in the community, and we are delighted to be able to contribute to your remarkable efforts”
SWB Colorado serves over 150 refugee and immigrant youth throughout the year through soccer, education, and community-based activities. Through after-school, weekend, and summer programming, youth gain the skills and supports they need to thrive, on and off the field.
“Support from LibertyGives has enabled Soccer Without Borders to become a consistent source of support for refugee youth in Greeley over the last four years. We are grateful to LibertyGives for their continued investment in our work, and look forward to an impactful school year ahead.” said SWB Colorado Director Casey Thomas.
