Dear Applicant:
Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal to the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

Our current grant application is attached for you to complete and return. The application deadline is July 31, 2010.


The Atlanta Braves Foundation actively supports community organizations and their programs within the metro Atlanta area that focus on youth in the areas of education, recreation and health.
Since its inception in 1992, the Atlanta Braves Foundation has provided support to thousands of metro Atlanta based organizations and has contributed more than $3.3 million in financial and in-kind assistance to the community. The Atlanta Braves Foundation provides monetary grants to organizations that aid children in the areas of education, recreation and health. In 2009, the Braves Foundation awarded nearly $120,000 to youth-serving organizations in the Metro Atlanta area.
Funds are raised each year through team-related activities including the Braves Foundation silent auctions, Jerseys Off Our Backs and Foundation Weekend. Fans, sponsors, and baseball enthusiasts support our efforts to raise this money that goes directly into the community – improving the lives of our youth.
The Braves Foundation Board of Directors will review the grant applications and make the final determination. The number of organizations funded by the Braves Foundation will depend upon the quantity and quality of grant requests received as well as the success of fundraising efforts by the Atlanta Braves Foundation.
We give all applications careful consideration. In order to accomplish this, the application deadline is not flexible.
Thank you for your interest in the Atlanta Braves Foundation. We look forward to receiving your application. If you have any questions, please contact me at

404-614-1539.


Regards,

Ericka Newsome-Hill

Executive Director
