The 3 Up 3 Down Organization strives to promote, strengthen, and foster youth baseball in and around the Hudson Valley as well as provide additional community support for those with developmental disabilities. The intent of the program is to support in-house youth baseball, programs that support those with developmental disabilities, getting children involved and keeping them in the sport versus leaving the game for other sports or activities. New in 2024 will be additional grants to support select scholastic baseball programs. Thank you for supporting and promoting youth baseball. Our organization will always take under advisement special circumstances.
2024 Grant Process: The 2024 Grant Process will open in February 1st and close April 15th.
In-house programs, scholastic baseball programs (middle and high school baseball/softball programs), and programs that support those with developmental disabilities are eligible and welcome to apply.
(Upon filling out the grant application, please also submit a statement in a separate email to firstname.lastname@example.org how your organization would use funds and/or what are the program’s needs.
