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. Funds may be used to finance new programs, expand or improve existing programs, undertake new collaborative efforts, or obtain facilities or equipment needed 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 amount is approximately $40,000.
To 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.
