Please Consider the Carmel Dads’ Club Annual Fund This Holiday Season
Carmel Dads’ Club is growing! Since 1959, our nonprofit organization has continued to expand to meet the needs of the Carmel community, and we hope to continue to foster that growth as we move into 2022. While still recovering from the unique challenges of the past few years, our Carmel Dads’ Club members have come rushing back to youth sports programming in full force. The organization welcomed more than 13,000 participants in 2021 – a record setting milestone.
It’s our goal at Carmel Dads’ Club to not only meet the expectations of our members, but to exceed them. To stay in a position where we can offer a quality youth sports experience to any child in Carmel who is interested, we have worked diligently for many years to open a new facility at Mark Badger Memorial Park. In January, that dream will finally become a reality. With the ability to host all twelve CDC sports (plus new programming), the new 130,000 square foot facility will usher in the next chapter of Carmel Dads’ Club.
As with any other organization, growth comes with new commitments and larger responsibilities. From organizing and running leagues to maintaining our facilities, a tremendous amount of work goes into coordinating twelve different sports with programming ranging from pre-k to high school. That’s where we need your help.
Our Annual Fund Drive makes sure we have the financial means to keep our non-profit organization running smoothly.
For more than 60 years, the mission of Carmel Dads’ Club has been to foster the development of youth in sports-related programs; to build self-esteem, physical fitness, respect, and achievement through a diverse level of sports. In order to bring that goal to fruition each year, we need your financial support. With the unprecedented growth of CDC and the corresponding obligations, your support is more important than ever.
Registration fees, sponsorships, concession profits, and fundraiser proceeds are our main sources of funding, but they do not cover the extraordinary cost of operating Carmel Dads’ Club. We maintain more than 222 acres of property and provide need-based fee assistance to more than 600 young people through the Kids All Play (KAP) program. We are also proud of our Special Sports Program, which offers seven different sports. The Annual Fund Drive helps us balance those costs.
In addition, Carmel Dads’ Club has gone to great lengths to keep our registration fees low compared to many other youth sports organizations. The charitable donations of our members during our Annual Fund Drive help us to continue to keep costs as low as possible.
