Groups located within select North American and international race communities are invited to submit an application for an IRONMAN Foundation Community Grant.

Since 2003, over $50-million has been provided to more than 8,300 local, regional, national and global nonprofit initiatives across all programs through grant funding from the IRONMAN Foundation.

Who can apply for a Community Grant?

The IRONMAN Foundation supports a broad range of organizations; however, priority will give preference to organizations and/or projects that:

  • Meet an identified need specific to that race community.
  • Can report a measurable impact at the conclusion of the grant period.
  • Leverage additional funds or secure match funding, therefore increasing the impact of the grant award.

What is the Gerry Boyle Memorial Community Grant?

Gerry Boyle was a community leader, respected businessman, active volunteer, and, most importantly, a friend to many. With his unexpected passing earlier this year, Gerry left behind an extraordinary legacy with an unmatched commitment to his community.

Gerry was the IRONMAN 70.3 Eagleman and IRONMAN Maryland Race Director and played an integral part in bringing the latter event to fruition in 2014. For more than 20 years, Gerry dedicated much of his life to supporting the thousands of athletes who descended upon Cambridge each year. It was his mission to provide an unparalleled and first-class experience for each athlete, honoring the hard work they put in to get to the start line. All the while, he was sure to keep efforts of the volunteers and support of the community at the forefront of everything he did. 

To honor Gerry’s legacy of “Service Through Sport and Commitment to Community”, nonprofit organizations in the greater Cambridge area are eligible to apply for the Gerry Boyle Memorial Community Grant. The deadline for applications is September 17.
