The S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation
The largest grant in PCA history comes from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, which has awarded PCA $2 million over the next three years (Sept. 2012-Sept. 2015) to fund a “High Tech/High Touch Initiative.” The grant will help grow the PCA Movement by building PCA’s technology infrastructure and by recruiting and empowering PCA Champions – volunteers and advocates at the heart of the PCA Movement.
The Foundation also funded PCA's partnership with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), mandating Double-Goal Coach® training for all 50,000 of its coaches. Additionally, the Foundation supports PCA's website improvements, including the September, 2011 re-launch of www.PositiveCoach.org.
