We are a nonprofit charity that stands for expanding diversity and strives to inspire and recognize courage and excellence in amateur athletics, education, and the arts. We work to make events available to everyone; and help under-resourced individuals in our neighborhoods thrive and succeed by encouraging and celebrating meaningful community participation.
Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose – it teaches you about life.

If you have the courage to compete in your local half marathon or show up for a neighborhood 5K fun run, then Glory Authority wants your community to celebrate and share in the success of your accomplishment. If your ambition drives you to further your education through certification or academic endeavors, then we want your achievement to be awarded. If you’re brave enough to get up on stage and perform in your local theatre, then we want your contribution to the arts to be honored and acknowledged by the people you care about most.
Want to join in the athletic, educational, and artistic fun, but don’t have the resources to pay your participation fees? Apply for a grant with the help of Glory Authority so nothing can hold you back from being your best!
Sports build good habits, confidence, and discipline. They make players into community leaders and teach them how to strive for a goal, handle mistakes, and cherish growth opportunities.

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.
– John F. Kennedy
35th President of the United States
Since the time of ancient Greece, participating in educational forums, athletic events, and artistic competitions has reminded us as individuals, as a community, and as a nation, we can achieve what is great and noble.
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.
– Helen Keller
