Mariners Equipment Donation Grant

About

The Seattle Mariners believe the opportunity to play baseball and softball should be available to all young athletes; irrespective of the barriers they may face. Since 2017, the Mariners Equipment Donation Grant has gone through four cycles, awarding a total of 40 high school baseball/softball programs across Washington and Oregon grants in the amount of five-thousand dollars ($5,000) to support their efforts to promote a positive playing experience.

The winners selected have represented schools from all corners of Washington and Oregon. The opportunity to meet and engage with the coaches and players from the winning schools has helped the Mariners better understand the socioeconomic challenges prohibiting many from continuing to participate in baseball and softball.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for all communities and has disproportionately affected those below the poverty line. Through the Mariners Equipment Donation Grant, the Mariners seek to ease financial burdens felt by many school districts during this difficult time.

Details & Applications

Each year, a committee overseen by the Seattle Mariners will select a total of ten (10) high school baseball and softball teams for these five-thousand-dollar ($5,000) grants for the upcoming season. Any high school in the state of Washington or Oregon showing financial need is eligible to apply for the Mariners Equipment Donation Grant.

Applications are now closed. To apply for funding in 2022, please check for applications opening in September 2021.
