Funding requests for monies generated during the 2016 season are now closed. The Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation will be accepting funding requests for monies generated during the organization’s 2017 season in November 2017, from children’s charities in Manitoba.
Since it’s inception in 1995, the foundation has raised nearly $2 million for children’s charities in Manitoba through a number of sources, most notably the annual Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation Golf Tournament. Other revenue generators include fan donations, the Fillmore Riley LLP Ks for Kids promotion, the TCBY Radar Pitching Booth, memorabilia auctions and the sale of 50/50 tickets at Shaw Park during home games.
According to the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation by-laws, funding is based on the following criteria:
- The charity must have a registered charitable number (15 digit number).
- The charity must be within Manitoba.
- The recipients of the funds must be Manitoba residents.
- The recipients of the funds requested must be under the age of 18.
If you are an individual requesting funding, you must do so through a registered charitable organization that meets the Foundation’s criteria. The Foundation cannot give funding to individuals.
Historically, the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation has not funded:
- day cares and their programs
- schools and their programs
- food programs
- pay-for-use enterprises
- general and capital expenditures
- playground structures or improvements
All decisions on funding are made by the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation, at its sole discretion.
