Sponsorship and Donations
How to Become a Sponsor
WPPA is a § 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization offering instructional youth baseball and softball for children ages 5 – 18 from the Near North, Lincoln Park, Lake View, North Center, Lincoln Square, Albany Park and River Park areas in co-operation with the Chicago Park District. Our Federal Tax ID# under IRS code § 501(c)(3) is 36-4018896. Donations and sponsorships to WPPA could be considered tax deductible.
Every year WPPA relies on the support of local businesses and individuals as part of our annual budget. We ask for donations to support our program in exchange for recognition of their support. These donations are a major part of our funding and they enable WPPA to keep fees reasonable, so that youth baseball and softball remain accessible to all families in our community.
Each season, individual teams and division are sponsored by businesses and individuals. Team sponsors receive a team roster, game schedule and recognition on our web site. While WPPA makes every effort to accommodate the association of a sponsorship with a specific team, sometimes this is not possible and we thank you in advance for your understanding.
If you elect to become a sponsor, in exchange for your donation, you will receive:
WPPA treats Sponsors as team members and encourages Sponsors to attend games. Coaches give recognition to their sponsors and invite Sponsors to attend and participate.
