Supporting young athletes since 2012

The Perago Trust was established in 2012 to help young, promising Cambridge athletes achieve their potential at elite level.  To date the trust has raised in excess of $140,000 for 36 athletes and supported 19 different sporting endeavors.   

There are two funding rounds per year, in April and September.  Applications open on the 1st of the month and are open for four weeks.

Perago is 100% funded through private donations and funds raised at trust events.  The more money raised, the more money young athletes receive to help achieve their goals.
