Youth Baseball, Softball Grants Available

Megan RoblJanuary 30, 2019

The Greater Salina Community Foundation is accepting grant applications for the Youth Baseball Fund and the Sunflower Softball Fund. Applications open on February 1, 2019.

These funds support local youth who would otherwise not be able to participate in baseball or softball due to limited financial resources. Grants may be used to cover registration fees, tournament fees, equipment, uniforms and clinics. This season, over $7,500 is available for baseball and $1,800 is available for softball.

Application deadlines are February 15, March 15, April 15 and May 15, 2019. Funding will be awarded on a first come, first served basis and decisions will be announced after each grant deadline. Apply online at http://gscf.org/search-apply-for-a-grant/.

The Youth Baseball Fund was established in 2000 by longtime youth baseball coach Larry Britegam, who wanted to help families who struggle with the financial demands of organized sports. Since the spring of 2015, both the Youth Baseball Fund and the Sunflower Softball Fund have awarded a combined $19,012 to 90 youth baseball and softball participants in the Salina community.

For more information, please contact Brandee Mayginnes, director of grants and scholarships, at 785-823-1800
