The Polo Development Initiative (PDI) grant program is designed to facilitate the sustainability of polo by empowering clubs and polo schools with grant-based reimbursable awards. The success of the sport depends on success of its clubs.

The intent of the PDI Grant Program, which is a reimbursable grant-based program, is to support thoughtfully presented applications for PDI funding that address specific, club-based, sustainability needs. Grant awards will be made in support of a specific purpose that addresses those needs, including by, but not limited to:

  • Advancing the sustainability and growth of club membership, taking into consideration club capacity and the available polo facilities;
  • Improving the quality of the polo playing experience; and
  • Promoting the development of the sport of polo
