We have created the Gold Card Auctions Youth Baseball/Hockey Development Foundation (YBHDF) to help promote participation in youth sports around the US. We look to increase opportunities for youth (16 and under) in particular, youth who are located in underserved communities.
UPDATE 2021: Please (journalist, community leaders) help us spread the word as we have only had one organization take advantage of this since 2019.
GoldCardAuctions.com feels youth baseball and hockey promotes self-confidence, sharpens social & motor skills development, and have the ability to create lifelong friendships. Youth baseball/hockey also reduces the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease… what’s not to like here?
The Foundation considers grant requests for funding for youth baseball/hockey equipment (i.e. baseball bats, balls, pucks, and or gloves) and possible projects (i.e. baseball field development and or renovations).
