The purpose of this fund is to supplement the needs of the Detroit Lakes Athletic programs for school age children. Equipment purchased must be owned by a qualifying 501(c)(3) organization. The primary emphasis will be on equipment that will be a benefit to all sports.  If no requests exist that will benefit all sports, the advisory committee will review requests from individual sports.  Fair and consistent treatment between sports over a number of years will be a primary consideration in recommending donations.
