Applications now being taken for California Casualty Athletics Grants

Entries for the 2014/2015 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grants are now being taken for Oregon public high schools in need of funds to preserve their athletics program. The grant program was created to offset severe budget cuts that have forced public high schools across the nation to decrease, eliminate or implement fees for their sporting programs – leaving some kids sitting on the sidelines unable to participate. The deadline to enter for 2014/2015 consideration is January 15, 2015. Details and entry forms can be found at

Last year, two Oregon public high schools received a total of $4,000 to supplement equipment and facilities.  Eugene’s Churchill HS and Portland’s Franklin HS received athletic grants in 2014.  Grants will be awarded again in 2015, however COSA members must apply online for their program to be considered. 

California Casualty has partnered with the COSA since 1981 and provides the COSA members with an Auto and Home Insurance program tailored to the needs of our membership. The company gives back through numerous community impact Initiatives:

  • The $2,500 Academic Award – given annually to an educator to help buy school supplies or provide for school programs facing cuts,
  • The $7,500 School Lounge Makeover® to create a more soothing and relaxing area for educators to recharge during the school day,
