Cromwell Little League

Why Do We Fundraise and seek sponsors?

Friends and Family of Cromwell Little League:

  Every year our league holds various fundraiser throughout the season to help generate necessary funds for our league.

  We operate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit and are 100% dependent upon registration fees, private donations, and fundraising events to continue our services and provide the Little League experience to the families in our community. We are not subsidized by the Town so we hold these events in order to keep the league running and making sure that the kids in our Town can play ball at a reasonable cost.
Our current registration fee is comparable to if not lower then most leagues in the area.
Cromwell Little League is proud to provide seasonal registration fees at a lower cost then the other sports organizations in town.

  The registration fees and sponsorship donations ensure we can operate and run our league each year. The Town does do maintenance on our fields but CLL has a substantial financial role in field improvements and maintenance. So fundraising is essential.

  Fundraiser are more vital to our future as the money goes directly into improvements to our facilities and fields.  This really helps keep our registration costs stable and why we’ve been stable for the past few years.

What are we fundraising for?

WIS Scoreboards. 95% complete. Operational spring 2019    Complete

Last year the league was able to secure a grant from LLI to purchase and install 2 new LED scoreboard for the softball fields at WIS
The grant was generous but not enough to cover the cost to do the actual electrical installation and hook up. The league was able to get a large majority of the materials to complete the job and the electrician has agreed to wait as long as it takes for payment for their labor.
any additional costs will be covered by CLL.
The addition of these scoreboards allows for a better fan/player experience that will allow us to host more Tournaments.

WIS dugouts. In approval and planning stage. Completion 2019/2020

CLL was approached by an employee of Vinyl Tech to have their Carpentry Shop construct wood dugouts for the WIS softball fields free of charge. Then a we found a community member that will make an anonymous donation to purchase the materials.
CLL is responsible for all permits/plans and additional costs.
These will provide an added level of safety and ease of use for the softball program.

Henderson/Linquist Field Lighting Project. In approval and planning stage.

One of the biggest issues CLL has is a shortage of baseball fields in town. There are actually only 2 Little League fields in town, the rest are actually softball fields. With the addition of lights CLL will be able to extend the use of Henderson and Linquist.
This is our largest project we are undertaking by way of size and scope. We will be relying on volunteers heavily to get this completed.
CLL has finalized costs with the manufacturer and is currently working on terms, and a member of the league is able to have the poles installed free of charge.

Bureau Field. Installation of grass infield to accommodate a 46/60 and 50/70 field.
Projected completion 2019/2020

The Parks Dept. has secured funds last year from the Town to do field improvements, CLL will be working closely with the Town of Cromwell on this project and providing a financial contribution as well as volunteers to get this project to completion. 
These improvements will provide an added level of safety and ease of use for the Triple A division and allow CLL to expand our 50/70 program.

Linquist,Phase 1/Henderson Phase 2 field renovations. Fall 2019

The Parks Dept. has secured funds last year and will be asking for additional funds from the Town to do these field improvements, CLL will be working closely with the Town of Cromwell on this project and providing a financial contribution as well as volunteers to get this project to completion.
