Learn. Play. Create.
Beacon Soccer Club is excited to learn that we will be a recipient of a $20,000 Dutchess County Learn. Play. Create grant!
The Learn, Play, Create program will provide one-time grants to local non-profit youth organizations that were deprived of a year of fundraising or participation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding will be available to non-profit youth organizations that directly serve children and families in each of the following categories: arts, libraries and athletics.
County Executive Molinaro said, “The last year and half has been tough on all of us, but our kids have felt so many of the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic – they have lost a year of opportunity and development as a result of the quarantine and stay-at-home orders necessitated by COVID-19. Our Learn, Play, Create grant program invests directly in our young people to help them regain some of what they lost, so they can again enjoy the fun of being a kid. I encourage organizations of all kinds that directly serve children to apply and help Dutchess County foster these children’s development. Let’s help our kids enjoy being kids again – whether they want to play ball, create a work of art or learn a new skill – we want to make it happen!”
Thank you to Dutchess County, and County Executive Marc Molinaro (and BSC Alumnus) for making these funds available. We will be sure to make everyone proud. Time to go and do some good.
Special thank you to our volunteers who discovered, applied, and worked to request these funds for the betterment of our Club.
Let's go Beacon!
