Grantees: SNY PLAY BALL! presented by Citi is a program to support youth baseball and softball leagues/divisions (players ages 6-12 only) in communities in the New York metropolitan area, including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania (Pike County) and Long Island (please view application for a full list of eligible counties). In 2012, six non-profit and tax-exempt organizations that demonstrate a financial need will be selected to receive a $5,000 grant to be used for the purchase of player equipment and uniforms, field maintenance and renovations, and other annual operating expenses such as umpire fees. Organizations are selected on the following criteria: 1) Areas served; 2) Ratio of operating budget to players; 3) Stated need and plan; 4) Creativity, originality and content of essay. SNY and Citi are also providing two additional $5,000 grants in conjunction with the Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF). Selection and eligibility requirements to receive a BTF grant are identical to those for the PLAY BALL! grant. Organizations simply need to submit one PLAY BALL! application to be eligible to receive either a PLAY BALL! or BTF grant – duplicate applications are not required. Applicants will be considered for both types of grant; however, a selected organization will receive either a PLAY BALL! grant or a BTF grant, but not both.
$40,000 (six individual PLAY BALL! $5,000 grants, two individual Baseball Tomorrow Fund $5,000 grants) (Note: three PLAY BALL! grants have already been awarded. A total of five grants remain – three PLAY BALL! and two BTF grants)

Bug Off! Why 'Skeeter Skidaddler May Be An Ideal Team Fundraiser

How many times have you watched a game or tournament and the only thing you recall years later were the flies and mosquitoes?

I can remember coaching many a Memorial Day soccer tournament, and mostly what I recall were the black flies that always seemed to hatch at the same time (Is it just me or does it seem that many athletic fields are built close to swamps?) Not to mention the bites I got from those nasty green heads when I was trying to sunbathe on the sandy beach where I grew up in Massachusetts.  'Skeeter Skedaddler

Major League Baseball Foundation

The Major League Baseball Foundation supports many organizations through its Baseball Tomorrow Fund and through its Rookie League. The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is a joint initiative between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association. The mission of the Baseball Tomorrow Fund is to promote and enhance the growth of baseball in the United States, Canada and throughout the world by funding programs, fields and equipment purchases to encourage and maintain youth participation in the game. 
Grants from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund are designed to be sufficiently flexible to enable applicants to address needs unique to their communities. The funds may be used to finance a new program, expand or improve an existing program, undertake a new collaborative effort, or obtain facilities or equipment necessary for youth baseball or softball programs. The Rookie League Pitching Machine Program can be a bridge between tee ball and live pitch baseball. Both programs partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
The Baseball Tomorrow Fund does not specify a maximum grant award; however, the average grant award is approximately $50,000. The applicant must determine how much funding is required for the project; however, written cost estimates and documentation to support the request are required.
Open, grants are awarded on a quarterly basis and are due on the first of January, April, July, and October

Amelia Peabody Foundation

The primary mission of the Amelia Peabody Foundation is to increase the number, range and depth of positive learning experiences available to materially disadvantaged youth living in the cities and towns of Massachusetts.


Most Peabody grants range from $10,000 to $1,000,000 and are made to organizations that serve disadvantaged, inner-city youth populations. Most often the organizations receiving grants will be located in the very neighborhoods that they would serve by their efforts and will employ staff members of the populations that they serve. Additionally, Peabody grants are made for almost any project that serves to promote and enhance the grantee organization's mission: for existing and new programs, for capital acquitions, for the renovation of existing buildings and facilities, for the repair, maintenace and purchace of equipment.
Peabody grants are made in a wide range of sizes, but always correspond to the requirements of the proposal, the size of the organization and its capacity to accomplish the grant purpose. Most grants fall in the $10,000 to $50,000 range for programs or operations. A smaller number of grants, generally in the $50,000 to $100,000 range, are capital improvement grants or other grants which also take an organization to a new level of operations in respect to the quality or quantity of services provided.
Grants are reviewed on a quarterly basis.

Grants To Build Skateboard Parks

The primary mission of the Tony Hawk Foundation is to promote high quality, public skate parks in low-income areas throughout the United States. Not every area can afford to build big, expensive skateparks, the foundation feels strongly that public skateparks should be designed and constructed by experienced contractors. They also believe that local officials should treat public skateparks the same way they treat public basketball courts or tennis courts, meaning that anyone may show up and use them anytime, unsupervised.

1. are designed and built from concrete by qualified and experienced skatepark contractors. 2. include local skaters throughout the planning, fundraising, and design process. 3. are in low-income areas and/or areas with a high population of "at-risk" youth. 4. can demonstrate a strong grassroots commitment to the project, particularly in the form of fundraising by local skateboarders and other community groups. 5. have a creative mix of street obstacles (rails, ledges, stairs, etc.) and transition/vert terrain (quarterpipes, bowls, halfpipes, etc.) 6. don’t require skaters or their parents to sign waivers. 7. encourage skaters to look after their own safety and the safety of others without restricting their access to the park or over-regulating their use of it. 8. are open during daylight hours, 365 days a year. 9. don’t charge an entrance fee. 10. are in areas that currently have no skateboarding facilities.
Minimum Grant: $ 1,000 Maximum Grant: $25,000
