The Washington Athletics strive to provide some of the best values among select baseball programs in the area. We rely on fundraising to help cover families in need and expense inflation. Fees associated with running a baseball program are extremely high and continue to grow each year as the program becomes more competitive and successful.
Instead of passing these fees onto families, we have a goal to fund raise a target of $250 per player. The 2016 season was the first time we had to raise fees in the history of the program as our fundraising has not been very successful.
We also do not want financial burdens to keep kids from playing and we offer limited scholarships to families who apply and are approved for hardships. We of course would like to increase scholarship availability as well through our fundraising.
We also strive to pay coaches fairly to attract and retain good coaches in the area and spend a little extra for payroll direct deposit, accounting, and stay current on vendor payments.
The organization is a 501(c) registered non-profit, so all donations are tax deducible and available for company matches, so please check to see if your company can match. EIN #46-0669055
We are already registered in the Microsoft system and a few others. Please pass this fundraiser along to your friends, family, and share it on social media. Volunteer hours are also available for match.
Also, if you are donating to support an individual player, please type their name in the comments/in tribute/in memory section of the donation form so we can award prizes for the top earners!
Thanks for your support of the Washington Athletics Baseball Club!
