Athletics grant applications now being accepted by California Casualty
Oregon public middle and high schools with an unmet sports program need may apply for a 2018-19 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant. Applications are now being taken; deadline for consideration is January 15, 2019.
Grant winners last year included Centennial High School (Gresham), Gervais Middle School and Henley Middle School (Klamath Falls). Each received $1,000 to support purchase of uniforms, equipment and other program needs.
The grant is named for California Casualty Chairman Emeritus Tom Brown, an avid sportsman who believes that teamwork, confidence and sportsmanship help develop high achievers in academics and in life. Since its inception in 2011, more than $660,000 has been awarded to some 600 schools across the nation.
California Casualty has been a COSA business partner for more than 30 years.
