REDS COMMUNITY FUND YOUTH BASEBALL & SOFTBALL FUNDING

REDS YOUTH BASEBALL & SOFTBALL FUNDING

The Reds Youth Baseball Funding program enters its 18th year in 2022. This initiative is a funding mechanism for underserved youth baseball and softball organizations. The program is inspired by local inner-city coaches who help keep baseball and softball vibrant in urban neighborhoods while striving to be positive role models.

The Reds Community Fund began this initiative in 2005 by funding five Knothole baseball organizations. In 2021 the Reds Community Fund supported more than 40 organizations while financially assisting more than 700 teams.

In order to qualify for funding, organizations must submit a grant application and receive a formal invitation to participate. In order to remain eligible for the program, each organization must complete a minimum of one community-based activity. Grant dollars can be used by the teams to assist with uniforms and equipment.

In order to be eligible, your organization must meet the following criteria:

  • Operate in "Reds Country" (Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana)
  • Serve the community by affording youth the opportunity to play baseball or softball
  • Must be able to show proof of financial need
