The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation are devoted to youth sports across Arizona. During the 2019 season, the D-backs Give Back PLAY BALL Fund, supported by Chase, will support the outstanding efforts of Arizona's dedicated parents, mentors and coaches to expand the game of baseball and softball by donating up to $60,000 to youth sports leagues. Our goal is to ensure that every child who has a desire to learn and play the D-backs way has that opportunity.
Any Arizona youth team, league, or organization can apply for funds to support player equipment, training for youth players or coaches, assistance with fees and expenses or facility improvement upgrades. We are not able to support travel expenses with the Play Ball Fund. In 500 words or less, make your best pitch for a $1,000 grant from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation. Tell us how the funds can help your team or league. Up to 10 applications will be selected for a charitable grant in each of the following months: April, May, June, July, August and September.
