The Durham Bulls Ballpark Project presented by Coastal Credit Union will award four local organizations $10,000 each for a facility renovation. Any organization which operates a baseball or softball facility is encouraged to apply, including Little Leagues, softball leagues, Miracle Leagues, schools and Parks and Recreation offices.
All organizations wishing to apply must fill out this application, and must submit a 500-750 word essay describing why this renovation would be important to its facility. These essays should also provide examples of how the $10,000 donation would be used if awarded.
Additionally, all organizations are encouraged to provide further materials that will supplement their applications and essays including but not limited to videos, photos, testimonials and individual endorsements.
"We're extremely excited to kick off our Ballpark Project this year," Durham Bulls Vice President Mike Birling said. "We know there are numerous facilities in the area that are in need of renovations, and we look forward to helping organizations grow the game of baseball, and help make the sport more accessible all across the Triangle."
All applications must be submitted by Monday, June 18 at 5 p.m., and applications will be accepted either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at:
Durham Bulls Ballpark Project
409 Blackwell St.
Durham, NC 27701
Winners will be selected by a committee comprised of Durham Bulls and Coastal Credit Union employees, and will be announced in July. Further, representatives from all four winning organizations will be recognized on-field at a Durham Bulls game in August.
