"From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life."
The NASC Sports Legacy Fund awards an annual grant to an organization in need in the host city the NASC Sports Event Symposium.
The Sports Legacy Fund is a way for members of the sport tourism community to make a personal and lasting impact on sports programs and initiatives that serve the underprivileged throughout the country.
An emphasis is placed on donations to not-for profit organizations that provide individuals, particularly at-risk youth, veterans, or physically or intellectually disabled individuals, opportunities to participate in sport and encourage healthy lifestyles. This contribution is part of the legacy the NASC leaves in each host city.
Since 2009, the NASC Sports Legacy Fund has donated more than $90,000 to beneficiaries in the host cites of the NASC Sports Event Symposium.
Contact Elizabeth Young, Director of Membership and Marketing, for any questions relating to the NASC Sports Legacy Fund.
