Niskayuna Baseball : How to Sponsor

Nisky2013
To All 2015 Prospective Supporters,

January 2015

 

Dear Friend of Niskayuna Baseball:

 

Spring is only a few months away.  In April, approximately 600 Niskayuna youth, ages 5 to 18, will head to the baseball fields to play the great American pastime.  While having fun, these kids will learn character-building lessons about teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, and friendship. 

 

Niskayuna Baseball League is a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer managed organization.  Our charter and mission are to provide children that live in the Niskayuna school district between the ages of 5-18 with the opportunity to play baseball.  Niskayuna Baseball and its fields are always busy from April through October, with youth recreational baseball, spring travel league, summer All Stars, fall travel baseball, sandlot games, and periodic tournaments. 

 

Niskayuna baseball continues to be the most popular youth sport in town, with the largest number of participants.  Our travel program has been particularly successful the past few seasons, sending two teams to the Babe Ruth World Series in two years, and its Cal Ripken 9U team advanced to the Mid Atlantic Regional Tournament this past year.  This on-the-field success, along with continuous program improvements, has spurred increased interest in Niskayuna Baseball.  This is reflected by a 50% increase in the number of fall baseball teams in 2014.


Our organization has tremendous support from over 150 volunteers, who make the spring, summer and fall baseball seasons possible.  In addition to the efforts of these volunteers, it is equally or even more important that we have the financial support of our community, primarily the businesses that our families patronize.  Last season, over 50 of our teams were sponsored by companies like yours.  This upcoming season, we hope that a local business will sponsor each of our teams as well as support our campaign to display sponsor banners in all open spots on our six home run fences.  The money that is raised through sponsorships provides much needed operational funds for uniforms and equipment, along with field maintenance, repairs, and improvements. Last year we used a portion of the funding to improve fences around several of our fields, improving spectator viewing as well as making our fields safer for the players and fans.

 

Please consider sponsoring Niskayuna Baseball for the 2015 season.  A list of sponsorship opportunities is attached to this letter along with a sponsorship commitment form that can be returned via email or regular mail.  The deadline for sponsorship commitment is March 1.  We encourage you to share your email address on the sponsorship form so you can follow us via our weekly emails or register online at https://nbl.sportssignup.com/

 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss other sponsorship opportunities, feel free to contact me.  Thank you in advance for your consideration of support for Niskayuna Baseball in 2015.

 

Sincerely,
