The Eastern Women’s Baseball Conference is a self-funded league. All teams/players are responsible for the costs associated with keeping the league running, keeping playable fields and providing professional officiating for games. As is with all living costs, the price to run the league goes up a little more every year. In order to continue to provide women in the DC/Baltimore Area the ability to play baseball we rely on donations.
These donations are tax deductible and go directly to league costs. We have a league Venmo for easy donation and we are also a part of Amazon Smile. If you or someone you know would like to donate to the Eastern Women’s Baseball Conference the information is below. Additionally, if you know of any businesses that may be willing to sponsor the league- or specific teams within it-please contact the board directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Contributions to Give 10 for 10
Several years ago we created Give 10 for 10, an organization inspired by the life and legacy of our friend, teammate and captain Carmen Dominguez, whose life was cut short by breast cancer. Carmen’s passion for life and generous spirit serve as a reminder to all of us to treasure each day we have and every opportunity we are given. While Carmen was not rich, she always found a way to make a positive contribution. By doing so, she left her little corner of the world a better place and inspired us to do the same. To honor that legacy, Give 10 for 10 encourages everyone to recognize the power they have to make a positive impact through even the smallest of gestures. As our motto says: “It’s Not About How Much You Have – It’s About What You Do With It.”
In an effort to meet these giving goals, the EWBC has partnered with the Fisher House Foundation. The Fisher House Foundation is an organization that provides comfortable living quarters for military families while their loved one receives treatment. They provide this comfort at no cost to the family. Some of the impact they make is shown below, but as a whole they provide many opportunities for military families. As a Four Star rated charity, you can be assured that your donations to Fisher House Foundation are going directly to their programs, supporting families in need.
Donations can be made through Give 10 for 10 or by mail at:
