Grassroots is starting the process of our first expansion outside of DC! With the help of a team of students in a philanthropy class at U of Maryland, we’ve already raised $15,000 to kick off ‘Grassroot Terps’ with UMD student-athletes and PG County Schools. Now we just need to start things rolling by putting together a team of athletes at UMD.
Our plan is to schedule a small meeting of athletes sometime just before or after Thanksgiving break.
Our call to action? If you are an athlete at UMD, were an athlete at UMD, or know an athlete at UMD, please drop us a line by sending an email to
We’ll assemble a list of names and emails and then start organizing from there. Yea, we are keeping it grassroots like that. THANKS!
