Chargers accepting applications for school grant program

The Chargers Champions School Grant Program is now accepting applications from San Diego County schools for its physical education and nutrition grants.

The Chargers Champions School Grant Program is an initiative of the Chargers Community Foundation and allows public and private schools within San Diego County to apply for badly-needed funding for physical fitness, nutrition or athletic programs on their campuses.

The program annually provides selected schools with grants of up to $75,000 for high schools; up to $40,000 for middle schools and up to $30,000 for elementary schools.

Applications must be postmarked by May 2 to be eligible for these grants. Applications are available through the Chargers’ website.

“Schools throughout California need our support,” Chargers CEO A.G. Spanos said. “The main goal of our program is to enhance students’ ability to live a healthy lifestyle through physical fitness.”

Since the program’s inception in 2000, the Spanos family has donated nearly $5 million to San Diego’s schools and students through the program.
