The Cannons are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization recognized by the IRS. Our IRS status and determinaiton letter are available upon request as our tax records. Every year we have to raise funds to finance the baseball season. While the League is sponsored in part by Major League Baseball, the Cannons portion of that is small. On average the Cannons need to raise over $50,000.00 by January or preceeding the season. Some of our largest expesnes are $3000+ for baseballs, $2500+ hats, $5000+ Away Uniforms, $7500 Home Uniforms. Playing Field rental and Bus Transportaion costs are in the tens of thousands of dollars and funds for all of these must be raised prior to the start of the season.
While we sell consessions, merchandise, tickets, and host summer camps, the majority of our revenue is form the kindness of the community. Advertising, Sponsorships and Fundraising are a necessity. Prior to the season will hope to hold a kick off party and fanfest sometime in the first few months of 2017.
