Having previously served as an executive for 15 years at U.S. Advisors, LLC, in San Francisco, Kevin Fitzgerald is now the CEO of Global Capital Advisors, LLC. Also a philanthropist, Kevin Fitzgerald supports the city’s Olympic Club Foundation.

The Olympic Club’s humanitarianism goes back to the 1860s. Its informal efforts to improve the lives of others by athletic competition led to the establishment of the foundation in 1992. The group now has youth sports programs in the nine counties surrounding San Francisco.

Its Athletes Fund provides financial support for girls and boys who can possibly excel at the international or national levels of their sport. Grants are available for 50% reimbursement of expenses, up to $5,000. Funded activities include training, coaching, and competitions. The grants cover athletes participating in sports ranging from swimming and cycling to handball and triathlon.

The age parameters are 10 to 18, although exceptions may be made for Olympic athletes. Recipients must be involved as amateurs and be nationally or sectionally ranked in their age group.
