Memorial Field Improvement Project

Memorial Park is owned by the Dobbs Ferry Village and serves as home to the Dobbs Ferry Recreation Department. The softball/baseball field is one feature of Memorial Park. Memorial Field is in disrepair and needs improvements.

DFYLL's motivation to take on this project independently stems from our mission to provide quality, safe and fun T-ball, softball and baseball programs which develop ideals of honesty, confidence, teamwork, respect, sportsmanship and community. We are struggling to deliver on these promises due in part to the shortage of attractive, playable fields for all of our Little League age groups.

DFYLL has obtained support from the Village to raise funds independently to resurface the field. This gives Dobbs Ferry taxpayers a choice about fiscally supporting this project and enables DFYLL the ability to accelerate the timeline by which the work can potentially be completed. A longer term, bigger vision to redevelop the park and field would be overseen by the Village if/when a capital project and budget are proposed and approved.

Reaching DFYLL’s goal to raise the funds needed to resurface Memorial Field can only happen if the community pulls together. Please contribute to this project. There are many flexible ways to donate (see below). Any amount helps!

Donations are 100% tax deductible.

OUR THANKS TO YOU FOR DONATING:
🥎⚾️ A donation of $250 gets your name on a banner with other generous donors to be hung at Memorial Field.
🥎⚾️ A donation of $500 or more gets you your own banner – that you can design yourself! (consistent with Little League decorum, of course) to be hung at Memorial Field.
ALREADY DONATED? There are still ways you can help.
🥎⚾️ Request a match from your corporate matching program if you have one.
🥎⚾️ Share, share, share the GoFundMe campaign or our fundraiser post on Facebook with your family, friends, and network directly via email, on social media, or by any means that works for you. It works!

This community has been successful when we've pulled together to achieve Dobbs Ferry park projects such as the new scoreboard and renovated dugouts at Memorial Field or even the new playground at Gould Park. We can do this! Thank you!
