About this funder:



NOTE: The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation Play Ball Fund application is powered by DonationXChange and is currently closed. The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation is focused on relief efforts for the COVID-19 pandemic and will not be accepting applications for 2020 funding at this time. 

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation are devoted to youth sports across Arizona. During the 2018 season, the D-backs Give Back PLAY BALL Fund, supported by Chase, will support the outstanding efforts of Arizona's dedicated parents, mentors and coaches to expand the game of baseball and softball by donating $60,000 to youth sports leagues. Our goal is to ensure that every child who has a desire to learn and play the D-backs way -- has that opportunity.

Any Arizona youth team, league, or organization can apply for funds to support player equipment, training for youth players or coaches, assistance with fees and expenses or facility improvement upgrades. In 500 words or less, make your best pitch for a $1,000 grant from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation. Tell us how the funds can help your team or league. Each month during the D-backs regular season, up to 10 applications will be selected for a charitable grant.

If the applicant is not a coach or administrator of the organization, the team or organization contact should be notified and a team/organization contact will be required.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
