“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 an important part of growing up.
It's an important part of your entire life.”
— BILL DANIELS
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 one of his coaches Bill wrote, “The principles he embedded in me have contributed in a large respect to the success I am fortunate to have had.”
Bill wanted young people to have access to quality coaches and sports programs that teach discipline, confidence, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The Daniels Fund carries out his vision by supporting organizations that provide quality youth sports programs. In addition, we support national and international amateur sports competition.
