Funding Application

Thank You for your interest in applying for Heisman Trust Funding.

The Heisman Trophy Trust recently established the Heisman Trophy Fund for Youth Development with New York Community Trust (NYCT). Established in 1924, New York Community Trust is one of the largest community foundations in the United States.

The purpose of the Heisman Trophy Fund for Youth Development is to support New York City charitable organizations that use sports to engage underprivileged young people, ages 8 to 18, in educational activities. The Fund seeks to make sports programs that offer educational services-while also helping young people learn teamwork, good sportsmanship, and the pursuit of excellence with integrity-widely available to disadvantaged young people, regardless of athletic ability.

The New York Community Trust funding application is usually in the mid-winter.  Please visit

The Heisman Trophy Trust will no longer be funding new organizations that fall outside of the funding guidelines of the Heisman Trophy Fund for Youth Development at NYCT.
