Since it’s inception in 1995, the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation has raised more than $2.6 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.
Funds raised during the season are available to registered children’s charities within Manitoba annually by way of an online funding request form.
Due to the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic and government restrictions at the border and with respect to group events, the team was unable to play in Winnipeg this season. There were limited funds raised during the 2020 American Association season and the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation will carry forward these funds to the next season. For this reason we will not be accepting funding requests in 2020.
We look forward to a safe and prosperous 2021 season and receiving your funding requests in November 2021.
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.
