The Foundation is a nonprofit Florida public charity under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). Donors can deduct contributions they make under IRC section 170. Help us fund initiatives for the betterment of baseball in greater Jacksonville or invest with us in the future Museum.

Where Your Money Goes

The guiding mission of the Foundation is to provide funding which will aid organizations in the betterment of the great game of baseball. Some grants will be for college scholarships for baseball players. More grants will go to improve the game at the youth level, in partnership with leagues and other community organizations, such as churches and schools. We hope to provide more and better fields, practice areas, batting cages, even lights. The Foundation will reserve 20% or less for operations of any net income from fundraisers, such as the Gala or other special events. Our Annual Report will be posted in FAQs. All donors will receive a letter of acknowledgement for tax purposes.
