Fiscal Sponsorship Program

The Lewisboro Baseball Association (NY) is a proud member of Baseball United’s Fiscal Sponsorship Program.

The requirements for starting and maintaining a 501c3 non-profit baseball organization are complex and highly regulated. As a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, we understand these challenges and the strain they can put on all-volunteer baseball organizations.

The Baseball United Foundation is proud to offer fiscal sponsorship services to baseball organizations in the United States. There are many important benefits available to partner organizations in our Fiscal Sponsorship Program, including:

  • Tax Deductible Donations – Our partner organizations can accept tax deductible donations.
  • Easy and Affordable – The process of applying for our Fiscal Sponsorship Program is significantly easier and affordable, compared to the process of applying for 501c3 status.
  • Fundraising Support – Baseball United has a long history of fundraising experience and success. We are happy to share our expertise with all of our Fiscal Sponsorship Program partners.
  • Minimal Paperwork – Baseball United takes care of providing tax deductible receipts to your donors, so you can focus on running your organization.
