2023 Youth Baseball Grant Application

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 to 2023 will be additional grants to support select scholastic baseball programs.  Thank you for supporting and promoting youth baseball.  Special considerations are always taken under consideration.


2023 Grant Process:  The 2023 Grant Process opens March 1st.  Applications will be accepted through 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 rstockfield@3u3d.org how your organization would use funds and/or what are the program’s needs.  Additional information may be requested at a later date if your organization will be considered for a 2023 grant.)
