For over 20 years, Honda and Little League Baseball and Softball have partnered to bring the joy of America’s favorite sport to as many neighborhoods across the country as possible. The Honda Little League Grant Program is an integral part of maintaining participation in areas facing economic and ecological struggles while helping the next generation stay focused on building a stronger community.
Honda Little League Grant Program Helps to Build a Brighter Future
Whether it is an aging ball field in need of a new catch fence, a team that lost their uniforms after a severe storm, or an underserved area that needs a helping hand to expand their program, the Honda Little League Grant Program provides the funds required to overcome a crisis and plan for the future. Over the past 20 years, Honda has granted over $1.4 million to 240 leagues. The extra dollars and support have assisted over 70,000 players, families, and coaches. Because of this program, members of the community can continue to participate in our nation’s sport.
Local teams facing hardships are encouraged to apply for the Honda Little League Grant within the application submission period that runs roughly from November through March each year. Applicants must include a complete project list, a roll of fundraising efforts, and quotes from suppliers and contractors.
Supporting Kids, Parents, Coaches, and Teamwork for the Win
At Honda, we fully understand that playing ball offers more for a family beyond scoring a run. Community competitions help to create a strong web of relationships among parents, coaches, and volunteers throughout the area. The neighborhood bonds as it celebrates each hit, catch, stolen base, and the first swing of a young player together. The participating players learn the value of teamwork, trying again, and belonging to something larger than themselves. By providing grants to struggling teams, we hope to see the next generation grow up experiencing all the valuable life lessons taught in the local ball field.
