BENEFITING: G O A LS ATHLETIC LEAGUE INC
DONATE NOW to The G.O.A.L.S. Athletic League, a fast-pitch softball program in Queens NY for girls ages 4-15, a 501 c3 not for profit dedicated to enriching the lives of girls year round through softball. We are entering our 8th successful year. Close to 200 little girls , some with little pink gloves, walk onto our softball fields each spring looking for fun, friendship, competition and the willingness to learn a new sport. We provide them with a safe place to play, dedicated volunteer coaches who are certified to teach fast-pitch softball, uniforms, skill building equipment and a year round indoor facility which they can use for practice on rainy days, batting practice and off season clinics and instruction. This indoor facility is a rented year round warehouse space that Goals built into an indoor batting cage, pitching tunnels, a small field, office and homework tutoring space in 2013. This facility is Goals largest expense but a main ingredient to our success. With year round instruction Goals has been able to send 24 girls onto college softball teams all on academic scholarships and some on both academic and softball scholarships. In 7 years we have placed close to 300 girls onto high school teams in the NYC area. In 2016, 100% of our new 9th graders made their high school teams. We are asking you to help the "Little Pink Glove" girls follow in the footsteps of the Goals graduates by donating to help keep the indoor facility open and updated with new equipment. Having an indoor facility in a safe neighborhood that young girls in our program can come and receive free and low cost instruction, low cost tutoring and homework help year round especially during the cold winter NYC months makes our program the most successful in Queens NY. However costs are rising, rent is getting higher, equipment needs to be replaced or upgraded and winter heating and summer cooling is getting more costly each year. Without your donation young girls can lose this vital space thus falling behind the rest of the country who are competing with them for scholarship dollars. No amount is too big or too small. Please consider donating today. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law and will go directly to helping the Girls of Goals. The Goals organization is a 100% volunteer organization so you can feel safe that your dollars will go to providing the young girls the programs they need to succeed. Thank you from all our "Little Pink Glove" girls. You are giving them a future filled with fun and learning.
