Focus Areas & Types of Programs Funded
“If you didn't mow the lawn, you didn't get your allowance.
You told a lie and got grounded for a week.
If you weren't a team player, you sat on the bench.
It's called discipline.
And it's not only a part of growing up.
It's an important part of your entire life.”
Bill Daniels’ motivation
Bill Daniels’ selection of Amateur Sports as a funding area demonstrates his belief that participation in sports can help change the direction of a person’s life. As a young man, he played basketball and football, and was a two-time Golden Gloves New Mexico state boxing champion.
As part of a tribute to a coach that had a significant impact on his life Bill wrote, “the principles he embedded in me have contributed in a large respect to the success I have had.”
Our goals in this funding area
Bill wanted young people to have access to quality coaches and sports programs that teach them important traits and build character. The Daniels Fund carries out his wishes by supporting organizations that provide quality youth sports programs. In addition, we support national and international amateur sports competition.
