Stories That Inspire

Girls Rugby

The US Rugby Foundation began its relationship with Girls Rugby, a non-profit dedicated to making a difference in the lives of young athletes through rugby, in July of 2021 when the Foundation awarded the group $22,000 to create new programs across the United States. After the success that Girls Ruby saw in this endeavor, the Foundation agreed to a new grant and awarded the group $10,000 in September of 2023.
