Providing resources, opportunities, and hope for America's underserved children
Our mission is to inspire, support and promote a pathway to success for underserved and poverty-stricken children within America’s most at-risk communities by using sports and other real-life examples to educate, provide guidance and mentorship!
Grow the Game Fund
Perfect Game has been the leader in growing the game of baseball in all ages, in all ways. In 2021, Perfect Game Cares launched a program dedicated to providing opportunities for baseball and softball players from the many underserved and at-risk communities across America.
This fund is a partnership of Perfect Game, Perfect Game Cares, Perfect Game alumni, current and former MLB players and corporate partners from across America.
If you know of a player in need of financial assistance to attend a Perfect Game Showcase or to offset the expense of travel baseball/softball, please reach out to Executive Director Jennifer Ford at [email protected] or 319-640-0556 to begin the application process.
