Not having sporting opportunities could severely affect many students’ future prospects.

As the school-year gets rolling, many districts are faced with the challenge to balance the many financial needs of their student-based programs. Public high schools in need of funding for their athletics program are urged to apply for a 2015 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant.

The Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant program was established to counter budget cuts that drastically impacted support for school athletics, in some cases forcing programs to shut down. Past California Casualty Chairman, Thomas R. Brown, an avid sportsman and athlete believes teamwork and competition help foster positive attitudes and success for student athletes. “Not having sporting opportunities could severely affect many students’ future prospects,” he said.

Headquartered in San Mateo, CA, with Service Centers in Arizona, Colorado and Kansas, California Casualty provides auto and home insurance to educators, firefighters, law enforcement and nurses across the country.
