Opportunity Gifts

The FAN is excited to have the opportunity to award yearly opportunity gifts to girls and women pursuing their sports dreams!

A BIG THANKS goes to our sponsors and donors and the Board of the FAN whose financial support makes these gifts a reality. These gifts are designed to encourage athletic participation in all sports and to help girls and women achieve “the next level” in their sport. Applicants do not need to be enrolled in any academic school or institution. The gifts are open to females of any age and for any sport.

Donate to the Gift program now! Help us, help female athletes – donate to the Opportunity Gift Fund (every little bit helps). See our Support Page for more details.

About the Gifts Over the past 12 years, the FAN has awarded more than $140,000 in gifts to over 280 girls and women participating in sports.
