FOUNDATION MISSION

The Future Stars Series Foundation was created with one goal in mind - to provide the opportunity for all players regardless of background, financial situation, or location to have the chance that otherwise they would not have been able to afford. Many players today face barriers to enter the game and lack the resources to overcome those. Your donation today and hopefully monthly will provide the on-going support that is needed to award these opportunities to those most in need. 


Will every player you help make it to the Major Leagues? No, but it will give them confidence in believing that they can overcome life's obstacles. The impact that your gift will have goes far beyond the playing field. You will directly play a role in changing a life that could lead to a college education for a young student-athlete who may not of even though graduating high school would be possible. You will have the choice to donate on different levels but please know that with a donation of $5 or $5,000, you are making a difference. We are breaking down barriers and joining us in our quest to provide a level of success for these young players.

ABOUT US

OUR VISION

The Vision of the foundation is to effect positive change in as many areas as we can in people's lives through baseball. We strive to not only remove the financial barrier created in amateur baseball but impact the choices families make in things as important as just being a family while they have the opportunity to do so. We want to help support community and values while assisting in preparing tomorrow's leaders. The sport of baseball is the most difficult game on the planet, and there is no better sport to work with than it when driving home resiliency, understanding, accountability, and hard work.

AREAS of IMPACT

The Future Stars Series Foundation strives to create a level of impact within the athletics community while also supporting other charitable organizations.  Players that are chosen to attend certain level events for the New Balance Future Stars Series have the opportunity to raise funds helping pave the way for other players to attend events where a financial barrier exists.  These players double the impact by also working with a charity that is selected by the Foundation board or one that the player chooses for personal reasons.  The goal is to create an understanding that our level of impact and paying it forward is bigger than just the game of baseball.  We want each player to pay it forward helping other players achieve their dreams just as they are doing without limitations for financial reasons. 

The Future Stars Series Foundation Board has approved the following organizations for the 2022 season:

Houston SPCA

As Houston’s first and largest animal protection organization, Houston SPCA offers the region’s most comprehensive, highly qualified care and services to animals in need. We stand by our mission to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation, and proudly place all healthy animals into loving homes, with adoption partners or in reputable sanctuaries. Nearly 45,000 animals are helped each year through a comprehensive array of services: adoptions, foster care, rehoming, veterinary care, wildlife rehabilitation, animal cruelty investigation, 24-hour injured animal ambulance, disaster/emergency response, Pet Safe (temporary housing for the animals of domestic abuse survivors staying in shelters), humane education, Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine partnership, and much more.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

The Tim Tebow Foundation strives to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Simply put, we fight for those who can't fight for themselves.
