Find Funding: Baseball & Softball Grants Available for Your Youth Teams

Are you a coach or volunteer who helps youth softball or baseball leagues in southeastern Virginia?

Do your teams need new equipment or uniforms? Does your field or sports complex require capital improvements?

If so, the Dal Pall Fund might be an opportunity you can’t pass up!

Administered by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, the charitable fund provides grants ranging from $500-$1,500 in support of youth programs that help children in Hampton Roads or on the Eastern Shore of Virginia learn to play and enjoy baseball and softball. Donor Dal Paull loves the games and appreciates what they teach young people. He tarted his donor-advised fund at the community foundation in 2005 and has recommended grants annually since then.

Past Dal Pall Fund award recipients include Bennetts Creek Little League for uniforms, Fleet Park Little League for break-away bases, Ocean View Little League for equipment and gear, and the Portsmouth Schools Foundation for field repair.
