GIVING TUESDAY

Support youth baseball & softball

The Reds Community Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of youth throughout Reds Country. We reach thousands of kids through our free baseball, softball and education programs at the Reds Youth Academy, as well as through our introductory Reds Fun At Bat program, Reds Youth Baseball and Softball Funding Network and developmental RBI program. We also partner with urban neighborhoods through our regional Field Renovation and annual Community Makeover efforts, which pivoted in 2020 to support urgent, front-line needs during the COVID-19 crisis. Especially during these challenging times, we are committed more than ever to serve at-risk children and families.

On November 30, the Reds Community Fund is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday. The global day of giving invites individuals to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season by giving back and initiating change in their communities and their world. Together, we can make a difference.

Starting on Giving Tuesday (November 30) through December 15, fans who donate a minimum of $100 will receive a free Reds hat in appreciation of that support. Also, the Reds Community Fund Board has agreed to match the first $5,000 in donations during this #GivingTuesday drive.

Below are the costs associated with a sampling of different baseball and softball-themed initiatives offered through the Reds Community Fund:

  • $50: Provides a set of personal softball/baseball gear (each child needs own equipment to eliminate the spread of COVID)
  • $100: Sponsors one child for an entire T-ball/Coach Pitch baseball season
  • $250: Provides “Fun At Bat” program equipment for an urban elementary school
  • $500: Underwrites 10 kids to participate in fall and winter programming at the Reds Youth Academy
  • $1,000: Allows for continuation of education with virtual instruction during COVID
  • $2,500: Underwrites college preparation for 50 students during the “Home Base” program

A donation of any amount can go a long way in helping cover these expenses and more. This #GivingTuesday, give the gift of baseball and softball to as many kids as possible.
