Sports Equipment Grant Request Form

The Tommy Bohanon Foundation Sports Equipment Grant is an opportunity for Southwest Florida youth athletic programs in need, to receive funding or physical equipment for their athletes. With the proper equipment, athletes can excel in their sport safely and more effectively. Since July of 2018, we have awarded over $135,000 to North Fort Myers High School, Dunbar High School, South Fort Myers High School, Mariner High School, Riverdale High School, Ida Baker High School, East Lee County High School, Island Coast High School, and Oasis High School. We have also awarded grants to other sports programs in the area that have needed assistance after the devastating Hurricane Ian had on their programs.
