for Knott Street Boxing Inc
The Knott Street Boxing Club focuses on school-age youth in the Portland area including Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties.  Current programming includes learning discipline, structure, and self-respect through the sport of boxing.  Hours currently are 5-7pm Wednesday – Friday, 4-6pm Saturday and financing is for as many as 50 youths weekly. Our organization’s target audience is underserved, underprivileged, and extremely low income youth from Portland and beyond.

The funds are for new equipment and to serve greater number of participants we serve. The foundation would support youth who can’t afford membership dues or new equipment like mouth guards and shoes. Funds will also be used for transportation for our boxers to and from competitions, many of which are long trips away from home. For example, competitions in Las Vegas, Spokane, Seattle, Kansas, and Bend are ones we regularly participate in. However, our financial situation currently threatens our ability to take our kids to these meets. These youths do not come from backgrounds where they or their parents can afford to take them on these trips. The kids love these competitions and benefit from them greatly. It provides a way for them to compete for trophies, test themselves, visit new places, and meet new people. These trips motivate the whole team and create opportunities that the boxers never forget. All the kids look forward to them.

 Our program serves youth from low socio-economic backgrounds that could not afford to be at the gym without financial assistance.  Financial need is determined by families that require public assistance or youth that are at-risk students. Other determining factors are youth who cannot afford to buy boxing equipment or pay regular membership dues at a gym. At-risk youth are targeted to keep these children off the streets and away from the dangers therein.  The physical and mental challenges of boxing prepare them for the rest of their lives.
