What is Avenuse Baseball and Why Are We Raising Money?
Avenues Baseball is a volunteer-run baseball league based at Lindsey Gardens Park in Salt Lake City. We want as many kids as possible to be able to participate in playing the greatest game, so our registration fees only cover the direct cost of running the league - uniforms, field rental fees, equipment, umpires, and insurance. However, we rely on donations for everything else, and our fields are starting to show their age. We play at public parks, and as we all know, city budgets are tight. As a league, we show our committment to our neighborhood and community by investing in field improvements. This season, as a league, we have completed 178 hours of volunteer work, cleaning up the park and the fields. Our upper field is way to big for little league, and we have a long term plan to make it more accessible and usable for the league and the community by shortening the field and adding practice space, storage, and a batting cage in what use to be the outfield. We also need a new backstop to protect our spectators from rogue foul balls!
How Much Do I Give?
Any amount makes a difference. Can you give $5, $25, $100, $500 or even $1,000? You choose the amount and you'll get our heartfelt thank you and a tax receipt as Avenues Baseball is a 501c3 nonprofit foundation.
How Do I Give a Particular Team?
Some teams are coming up with silly incentives to encourage giving, so we're allowing them to track how much they have raised as a team. This is just for fun, and because who doesn't want to see their coach do something really goofy. All the money raised goes to the league as a whole. If your team is doing something like this, here is how you donate to their team:
- Click on a Team above in the scroll bar or choose the Team during checkout.
- Click the Contribute button and type in your amount and click to Pay.
How do I donate to more than one Team? Repeat steps 1 & 2 for every Team's page in which you want to donate. They will be separate transactions.
