Baseball Tomorrow Fund

Grantor: Baseball Tomorrow Fund
Posted: October 10, 2018
Due: January 1, 2019

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is a joint initiative of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association. BTF awards grants to nonprofit organizations involved in the operation of youth baseball and softball programs and facilities.

The funds may be used to finance a new program, expand or improve an existing program, undertake a new collaborative effort, or obtain facilities or equipment necessary for youth baseball or softball programs. Grants are intended to provide funding for incremental programming and facilities for youth baseball and softball programs, not for normal operating expenses or as a substitute for existing funding or fundraising activities.

BTF does not specify a maximum grant award, but the average is approximately $40,000. Generally, at least 50 percent of the total cost of the project should be committed by other sources of funding; however, the higher the ratio of matching funds, the better chance an application will be successful.

‚ÄčTo be eligible, applicants must be a U.S.-based or international nonprofit and tax-exempt organization involved in the operation of youth baseball and/or softball programs and facilities. Organizations operating in the U.S. and international locations are eligible to apply.
