Water & Field House Project
Jacksonville Area Baseball (JAB) needs your help to continue its growing non-profit youth program!
In the 2020 season, JAB was blessed to have close to 400 Jacksonville Area youth (ages 4-13) participate in the baseball and softball programs. This was made possible with the help of numerous volunteers dedicating their time, resources, and passion. Thank you to those who participated and volunteered last year! The past few years also held many moments of achievement for the JAB program including completing the final payment to obtain the JAB land from the American Legion! We are excited to take the next step to commit to a long-term sustainable plan to offer affordable youth sports in the Jacksonville area for future generations.
The baseball complex currently has 3 fields located on Superior Street behind the American Legion in Jacksonville. The complex does not currently have access to water, preventing the construction of bathrooms, water at concessions, and access to water fields in dry conditions. We have a proposed plan to update the facility with the necessary buildings and amenities is attached. The estimated project cost is $80,000, but unfortunately there is no tax dollar support from the city for the complex so JAB is counting on community support! (Contributions may be tax deductible as JAB is a 501.C3)
Field House Sponsorship - The field house/block building will be named after a business and will be highly visible to the thousands of members of our community visiting the complex each season. The first business to commit will get this sponsorship as only one is available. Lifetime of the building will be $20,000 donation. – SOLD OUT - KIWANIS
Water Project Sponsorship - 4x10 Metal Sign at Entrance of Park - $10,000 Business name will be placed on a permanent sign as a dedication to this project visible to all who visit the park for many years to come.
Mural Sponsorship - We will be creating an advertisement mural on the side of the building to show our sponsors for this project (one-time cost).
Platinum = Large size advertisement $1000
Gold = Medium size advertisement $500
Silver = Small sized advertisement $200
Team Sponsorship - Your Business name on the back of a team’s shirts - $250 (Limited by the number of teams per season)
Prize Sponsorship - JAB hosts a raffle each year in an effort to help players minimize costs to play baseball or softball. This allows an avenue for families to play for free if they want to sell the tickets, so no kids are left out. We are looking for bigger items that we can include toward the raffle drawing. JAB can exchange for advertisement options depending on size of donation. Please reach out to Brett Rohlk through Facebook if you are able to help.
