Lost Boyz Awarded Prince Charitable Trust Grant!

The Prince Charitable Trusts were established in 1947 from the bequests of Frederick Henry Prince (1859-1953) and his wife, Abbie Norman Prince (1860-1949). The three trusts operate as a family foundation with giving programs in the city of Chicago, the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, and the state of Rhode Island.

According to The Prince Charitable Trusts’ website, “PCT supports a broad array of services to keep the city of Chicago vibrant and enhance the quality of life of its citizens. In 2016, the Trusts’ giving in Chicago was approximately $1.9 million.

In 2009, at the suggestion of a trustee who had experienced the benefits of sports participation in his own life, PCT began a pilot grant-making program to fund youth sports organizations. PCT’s funding interest ran parallel to the emergence of Sports-Based Youth Development (SBYD), a field that combines the expertise and best program elements from youth development, mentoring, athletics and physical fitness, and academic enrichment.” This is the very field on which Lost Boyz programs are based.

“Recent research highlights the benefits of SBYD. It contributes to improved health and fitness, but just as importantly, it helps youth become better at planning, coping with stress, and engaging in positive relationships with peers and adults. Such benefits may prove particularly crucial for youth living in under-resourced communities, who face risks and challenges like concentrated poverty, higher rates of obesity and other chronic health conditions, exposure to violence, and limited availability of afterschool and recreational activities.”
We would officially like to welcome The Prince Charitable Trusts to the Lost Boyz family and we are very excited to have their support.
