All of those who have donated, thank you. Our 30 day clock has ended, but with that comes opportunity.
The next step to finish fundraising for this project, has already been in the works. I have been working on reaching out to other former baseball alumni about the importance of this scholarship for a future Charlotte 49ers Baseball Player. With the platform fundraising being over, it now gives me the opportunity to ask for pledges for the scholarship.
What is a pledge? A pledge will allow someone to give a monetary value over a period of months. For this purpose, I'm thinking 10 months. For example, someone can make a pledge of $500 over 10 months. For 10 months, we would charge their credit card only $50 each month...which is much easier than giving $500 upfront.
I'm explaining this because if you know a former player who might be interested in donating, but can't give that $250 or $500 at once, giving $25 or $50 each month is much more feasible.
We will finish funding this scholarship because of everyone who has already donated and those who have yet to. Please keep spreading the good word and give me a call at (704) 687-6063 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know others who would like to donate. Lets keep this moving!
