Sponsorship and Donations

How to Become a Sponsor

WPPA is a § 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization offering instructional youth baseball and girls' 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 girls' 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.
