The principal purpose of the Boston Judo Fund, Inc. is to operate for charitable and educational purposes, and to conduct, support, and develop amateur athletes for national and international competition in judo – and to provide disadvantaged youth and adults judo training and educational support.
WHAT ARE SOME ACTIVITIES THAT BOSTON JUDO FUND SUPPORTS?
Eligible funding from the Boston Judo Fund Judo can include – but not be limited to – expenses related to:
- junior and senior judo competitions that receive classification and points on the USA Judo national roster – as USA Judo may establish and revise from time to time;
- participation in judo competition, training, educational and developmental events sponsored and/or sanctioned by judo organizations recognized by the International Judo Federation;
- support for disadvantaged youth to participate in developmental judo programs;
- educational support for judo athletes;
- establishing programs and facilities to promote and develop judo educational and training programs for disadvantaged youth, and
- developing national and international judo competitors of all ages and at the grass roots level.
WHY IS THE BOSTON JUDO FUND DOING THIS?
Unlike many other countries in the world, U.S. judo athletes do not have adequate public support essential to train and succeed at the international judo competitive level. Judo practice and training offers disadvantaged youth life skills necessary to overcome any barriers. Finally, the Boston Judo Fund, Inc. supports judo players that need educational support while training.
