Applications are now open for the 2022 Jays Care Foundation’s Field of Dreams program, which has invested more than $15 million across Canada over the past 10 years. The Foundation is the charitable arm of the Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball team.
Field Of Dreams is the granting program for infrastructure dedicated to youth life-skill development and physical activity. It provides funding to design, refurbish and build safe spaces for children and youth to play baseball, develop life skills and learn from positive role models.
In addition to what young people gain from the program, communities benefit by increasing access to baseball and accessible spaces and boosting local engagement and capacity for enrolment in youth programs.
There were 14 Field of Dreams recipients this year.
Non-profit baseball associations, municipalities, First Nations and charitable organizations are qualified to apply for Field of Dreams by the Oct. 29 deadline. – Additional details can be found on Samaritanmag online.
