Ashland Optimist Foundation

What we do:

Ashland Optimists' motto is “Friend of Youth." We provide many youth activities, such as: recreational youth sports, essay and oratorical contests, college scholarships, community swim pool, fishing derby, safety on wheels, respect for law, and much more.

Why we’re great:

Ashland Optimists ensure that all youth, whether they can pay or not, and regardless of their skill level, can participate in youth activities. We collect and refurbish bikes for foster children and children in need.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We provide recreational youth sports, including soccer. We keep costs low, and offer scholarships, so that every child may play. Donations will assist us with lights, nets, fences, and equipment, so that all children can play on a good field.

List of volunteer and in-kind needs

Soccer balls, field cones, pinnies, and used equipment from almost any sport.
