FIELD OF DREAMS FOUNDATION

 

 

Since it’s inception in 1995, the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation has raised more than $2.4 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 2019 season are available to registered children’s charities within Manitoba.  All requests must be submitted via the funding request form provided which will be available as of November 15, 2019.  All areas on the form should be completed as requested, along with a valid Charity Registration number.  Three funding options may be entered for consideration.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation will accept funding requests, for monies generated during the 2019 American Association season, November 15, 2019 to December 16, 2019.  All decisions on funding are made by the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation, at its sole discretion.  Successful applicants will be contacted in February, 2020.
