The Peter Amor Sports Participation Grants are an annual grants program delivered by the Ballarat Foundation and United Way Inc.
Set up in Peter’s honour by his family from funds generously bequeathed by Peter, this fund will help young children from disadvantaged backgrounds to participate in sport by assisting with some of the financial barriers that may otherwise prevent this.
Peter saw sport as a way to forge strong friendships, to learn about yourself and others, to be part of a team and community – and to have fun. Peter’s love of sport continued into adulthood, and he was heavily involved in many different sports over the years. This positive first hand experience of participating in sport is why Peter wanted to extend this opportunity to as many children as possible.
