Matching grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to Upper Midwest USA, Southwest Florida, and Manitoba nonprofit organizations, schools, and governmental agencies to improve baseball and softball fields that are primarily used by youth. Funding may be used for the renovation or construction of ball fields.

Eligible renovation projects include the upgrading of essential field components, such as new sod, infield, fencing and dugouts. Non-essential items, such as lights, bleachers, grandstands, restrooms, batting cages and scoreboards, do not qualify for support. Routine maintenance of fields does not qualify.

Communities that have not received a Twins Fields for Kids grant receive higher priority.

$1,000 - $10,000

The program is open to any independent Upper Midwest or Southwest Florida 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, school, or local government unit that operates youth baseball and/or softball programs. For the purposes of these grants, the Upper Midwest includes Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Any organization operating baseball or softball programs for youth that has secured funds equal to or exceeding the amount of the requested matching grant funds (can include in-kind contributions of materials or labor) may apply for a grant.

Organizations must also be governed by active boards and have sufficient revenue to operate their leagues.

Organizations must complete an application and submit other required documents. Applications will be accepted and reviewed throughout the year until all funds are distributed. Final grant determinations will be made by the Minnesota Twins Community Fund Board of Directors in April, June and September (provided funds remain through all three cycles).
