As we work to ensure the successful implementation of our short-term objectives, we envision longer-term goals that will ultimately enable us to build multi-dimensional resources that will more fully contribute to the success of the people and organizations we strive to support.
UDACF Scholarship Fund
Raise one million dollars annually to support a general scholarship fund which can be used to support young athletes travel, team costs, lesson and cage rental cost, as well as equipment needs of teams and athletes. The UDACF aims to establish a college scholarship fund which can be used specifically for players trying to play baseball at the next level in need of assistance.
The foundation has a dream of having a UDACF complex to promote the game of baseball in the Charlotte region and beyond. Being able to have a set of maintenance minimum fields in a city such as Charlotte, NC gives the foundation an opportunity to host free camps, clinics, and tournaments sponsored by the UDACF. Having the fields in very easily accessible city, with a world-class international airport and major highways 77 & 85, allow us the unique opportunity to bring in talent from across the country to use the fields the foundation provides. The general scholarship fund would be a direct benefit of field use during open times which would help generate revenue for those young athletes in need of assistance.
An indoor facility designed specifically for baseball will allow many of the same benefits of the proposed fields. These indoor facilities will give the UDACF an opportunity to provide professional level coaching to young athletes through a paid-for-facility in multiples regions of the country. The goal of bringing past players from Major League Baseball back into the game of baseball through these facilities will allow these former players an opportunity to give back to the game of baseball that gave so much to them. One of the biggest challenges to providing appropriate pricing for lessons and coaching is the cost of the space to provide these lessons.
All proceeds directly support our efforts. Attract the best teams in the region to play in a weekend tournament where all proceeds are directed back into the programs that support the athletes and organizations in need.
