It’s been a long time coming, but the Washington Athletics Baseball organization is now a 501(c) designated charity, retroactive to August 2012!
This is going to open a brand new door for our organization and allow us to reach out to donors, improve fundraising, increase scholarships, and expand funding. We going to start to look for individual team sponsors, donations, corporate matching, and other funding sources to try to cut future expenses for everyone involved in our organization and increase scholarships for those facing difficult times or who are not as financial fortunate as others.
We can now also dramatically improve our fundraising strategies which could help fund possible out of state travel to tournaments or in state travel expenses as well.
We will release more information on ways to help in the months coming as we work with the Board, parents, players, and community members to develop the best plan for the organization to take full advantage of the charity for the benefit of future and current players.
If you know of any interested donors or sponsors, or have any suggestions or ideas for fundraising, please let us know.
