BACKGROUND OF ALL WEST’S RAE FOUNDATION:
Since 2004, All West has worked to build the sport of lacrosse in Northern California. Every year, we are approached by hundreds of families about the availability of scholarships to our programs. In addition, organizations such as Lacrosse4LIFE, the NCJLA, the Norcal Chapter of US Lacrosse, local schools, and lacrosse clubs have regularly requested our support of their activities. Each year, we have responded to as many scholarship requests as possible, but we are limited in the number we can provide due to the associated costs.
We, like you, want to grow the sport of lacrosse and are disappointed to turn away eager players due to lack of available funds for financial aid. Ultimately, the lack of financial aid to cover direct costs incurred for each participant in a program limits the growth of lacrosse. We have been trying for several years to find a better vehicle than presently exists to deal with need-based requests of all kinds. Having found none, we concluded that we needed to start our own 501 (c)(3).
