MBYLL Launches Grow The Game 3000 Fundraiser

Major fundraising initiative to provide equipment and memberships to 1,000 players in 2022

 

March 9, 2021 (Natick, MA) –Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL) today announced a new fundraising initiative, Grow the Game 3000, to support equipment, membership, and program grants throughout Central and Eastern Massachusetts for 2022 to increase youth lacrosse participation. Donations are being accepted now at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/grow-the-game-3000

“The initial costs for a new player are undoubtably a barrier to some in having their child play youth lacrosse,” said Jim Dalton, MBYLL President. “We are launching this fundraising campaign to eliminate that barrier completely for 500 players and provide another 500 players with free sticks for 2022.”

Grow the Game 3000 has the goal of raising $300,000 by September 30. With this fund, MBYLL will-

  1. Cover the costs and provide the following for 500 new players:
  • Town Membership Fee
  • Helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, and gloves
  • Complete stick
  • Lacrosse Cleats
  • League Membership Fee
  • Uniform
  1. Distribute an additional 500 sticks to returning MBYLL players
  2. Provide a total of $50,000 in grants for the league and member towns to use towards Grow the Game initiatives such as, but not limited to: Learn to Lax Clinics, getting lacrosse into elementary schools, community outreach for new players, player scholarships, and player equipment.

The basis of the campaign name is to find 3,000 individuals, families, or businesses to donate $100 in support of giving more kids the opportunity to play lacrosse next year. While $100 is the goal per donation, donations of any amount will be accepted. CLICK HERE to donate today.

“This league wide initiative will allow MBYLL to support growth in all 96 of our member programs by fully funding players in need in every town and having the ability to financially support programs specific to their town and programs that expose kids to lacrosse across the region,” said Kevin Barney, MBYLL Director of Sales & Marketing.

MBYLL will announce over the summer how town programs and individual families can apply for the 500 fully funded player equipment, memberships and uniforms, as well as the 500 complete sticks. Town Programs will also be able to apply starting in July for Grants to support Grow the Game Initiatives in their towns.
