The Delmarva Shorebirds' Fly Together Fund, established during the summer of 2009, is designed to help fund local community projects, with a focus on youth centers and youth sports. Each season your Shorebirds donate thousands of dollars in merchandise and tickets to non-profit organizations, and now, thanks to the support of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore, the team is able to raise cash funds, which will all be put back into the community in the form of cash donations.
The charitable fund reflects our commitment to strengthen our community using Arthur W. Perdue Stadium and family fun as a backdrop. It will also enable local businesses to make tax-deductible donations in their efforts to support youth projects in the area.
Monies raised by the Shorebirds Community Fund will go to benefit youth sports programs, although the fund will not be limited to this. Most area charitable organizations will be considered as potential beneficiaries of the fund.
Current beneficiaries of the Shorebirds' Fly Together Fund:
- Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore
- Lower Sussex Little League
- Wicomico County Girls Softball
- Fruitland Little League
- Delmar Little League
- West Salisbury Little League
- Berlin Little League
