REDS COMMUNITY FUND REDS YOUTH BASEBALL FUNDING

REDS YOUTH BASEBALL FUNDING

The Reds Youth Baseball Funding program enters its sixteenth year in 2020. 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 2019 the Reds Community Fund expanded the program to reach more than 60 organizations while financially assisting more than 800 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 three community-based activity. Grant dollars can be used by the teams to assist with uniforms and equipment expenses, along with field fees, league fees and trophies.

As part of its baseball-themed outreach, the Reds Community Fund offers field renovation and youth baseball funding grants. 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
