Following the launch of the World Olympians Association’s inaugural Service to Society Grants in November 2016, WOA patron HSH Prince Albert has personally donated a further $5,000, opening up another National Olympian Association (NOA) grant opportunity and kicking off WOA’s project to receive donations to the fund so that more grants can be awarded and more deserving causes assisted.

Prince Albert said: “It is a personal pleasure of mine to be able to support World Olympians Association’s Service to Society Grants. Olympians truly embody the Olympic spirit, and this platform is crucially important for them to emphasise these key values to the wider community.

A former Olympic athlete, the Prince added, “I believe that WOA is able to bring the spirit of the Olympics to people who may otherwise not be able to reach it, and it is my hope that this additional grant will help WOA and NOAs impact more lives across the globe.”

The new initiative originally gave five NOAs around the world the opportunity to claim $5,000 to run sustainable Olympian-led activities within their communities.

With HSH Prince Albert‘s generous donation WOA will now offer six grants, meaning that the top six NOA submissions from around the world will receive the $5,000 funding. WOA is hoping that with the donors’ project up and running more benefactors will come forward to help grow the monies available for Service to Society Grants

“This work is critical in developing society through sport and spreading the Olympic message, and I am pleased that I have been able to assist in this important initiative and hope that others will follow suit,” Prince Albert said.

All NOAs are encouraged to apply before January 31, 2017.
