DEADLINE EXTENDED! The 2014 Tip the Hat Award Deadline is now December, 31, 2013!

The LIDS Foundation, a charitable 501(c)(3) organization and the philanthropic arm of LIDS Sports Group, is excited to announce the kickoff of the second annual nationwide “Tip the Hat Award” campaign. With a mission to support healthy and active youth programs, the LIDS Foundation is in search of charities with a similar focus. At the end of the campaign, the LIDS Foundation will award one worthy charity with a $100,000 grant. Two secondary awards of $25,000 will be awarded to the runner-up organizations.

Those interested in applying for the “Tip the Hat Award” grant are encouraged to review the official entry rules, and submit an application. The deadline for entries is November 30, 2013 December 31, 2013. Applicants must include how they intend to use the grant funds.

As part of the application process, qualifying charities must have the support of at least one LIDS Sports Group (Hat World, Inc.) employee. No purchase necessary. Gifts to solicit employee sponsorships, be it financial or otherwise, are not permitted. This application element provides an opportunity for the valued LIDS Sports Groups employees to be an advocate for their preferred charity.

Once all applications have been received, the LIDS Foundation Board of Directors will narrow the list down to three semi-finalists. The top three will be encouraged to rally supporters in February 2014 to cast a vote on the LIDS Facebook page, as the public will determine the “Tip the Hat Award” grand prize winner.

So step on it, for a chance to win $100,000 from the LIDS Foundation!
