Renovating Richmond's Recreation

Flying Squirrels Charities

Flying Squirrels Charities is a non-profit, 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to improving lives in the Richmond community. The organization launched in 2014 and since its inception has been focused on "Renovating Richmond's Recreation" an impactful community project designed to renovate 14 Richmond youth baseball facilities. Renovations for many of the fields are already underway with the assistance of Richmond Raceway Cares, Barton Malow and Henrico County Vocational Technical Education Foundation (HCVTEF).

Flying Squirrels Charities has collaborated with the City of Richmond to identify the youth fields most in need of assistance within the community. The needs of these fields are being addressed and enhanced to make each area a welcoming space to learn and play baseball. Funds for the ongoing projects are raised through numerous events during the calendar year including the Charity Hot Stove Event, Turn Left Golf Classic, jersey auctions and Nutzy's Rotary Funn Run & Block Party. Flying Squirrels Charities has the unique ability to connect the Flying Squirrels brand with the Greater Richmond community in an effort to optimize results through funn and versatile fundraising campaigns to benefit the Richmond community.
