2020 MBF Grant Application

Registration is currently closed.


Thank you for your interest in applying for a Michigan Baseball Foundation (MBF) grant. MBF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity, which was formed in 2006 to create regional economic development and to enhance the efforts of regional organizations that serve young people through creative partnerships and grants. Grant application and applicable guidelines for submission are attached.

The Grants Committee, appointed by the MBF Board of Directors, will evaluate all grant applications and make determinations on project merits in accordance with its grant guidelines.  Organizations seeking funding should submit their requests during our annual grant cycle period, which begins on December 2, 2019 and closes on February 15, 2020.  Requests will not be accepted after the closing deadline.  Recipients will be required to update the Michigan Baseball Foundation Board on the success of the project for which the grant was used.

 MBF will consider funding Mid-Michigan non-profit organizations that use grant money to fund projects.  Grant monies are not intended to fund day-to-day operations or programs. Primary consideration will be given to organizations in the Midland, Bay, Saginaw, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Genesee, Isabella, Tuscola, Huron, Arenac, Ogemaw, Sanilac and Iosco counties. Strong consideration will also be given to organizations that have:

- A practical financial development plan either in place or under way that details funding sources

- A strong infrastructure and solid operational plan or strategy in place or under development

- Dynamic leadership both at the management level and on the governing board(s)

- Strategic alliances with other public and private agencies, businesses and individuals

- A system for evaluating and developing their programs, management and staff to keep the organization viable and effective

Thanks again for your interest. We look forward to receiving your application and supporting documentation by our deadline date of February 15, 2020.
