Overview

The Skeeters Baseball Foundation promotes youth education and healthy activities for culturally, racially and economically diverse populations in the Fort Bend county and surrounding areas.

Our goal is to reward the kindness and support of the community by making a difference in the lives of children. By providing a number of opportunities for vulnerable populations, we are taking away the sting of isolation and welcoming them wholeheartedly to join their community.

The Skeeters Baseball Foundation will provide in a number of ways including support of other educational programs through a grant program, merchandise donations to be utilized by organizations such as auction items, the underwriting of game tickets and game day transportation.

Specifically, the Skeeters Baseball Foundation has donated funds to the Alief YMCA, Arc of Ft. Bend, The Boys and Girls Club of Richmond-Rosenberg, The Dream League Challenger Division of the First Colony Little League and worked with the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation on the construction of the City’s first universally accessible playground Project at First Colony Park.

Since it's inception the Foundation has raised over $100,000 with their Kickball Classic and Golf Fore Skeeters events.

Marquez Family

In 2019, the Skeeters Foundation's awarded a grant to Hope for Three through their Grants Program. With the use of this grant , a very special family was able to attend Camp Aranzazu with their young children, who otherwise may not have been able to do so. It is programs like these and organizations such as Hope for Three that truly embody what the Skeeters Foundation stands for and aims to enrich the everyday lives of the youth of Fort Bend county.

"Our stay at Camp Aranzazu was amazing. For our family, it was the first time to have an experience like this. ... We, the whole Marquez, are thankful and feel blessed for receiving this opportunity. We are thankful with all the people involved to make this happen. Thanks to Hope For Three, thanks to Camp Aranzazu, thanks to {the staff at Camp Aranzazu}. Thanks to the Skeeter Foundation. Without all of you, being able to provide my family with a similar experience would have been close to impossible.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for allowing us to have this adventure, thanks you to help our family and our sons. We feel blessed by all the positive energy and energy that you share with all of us.

-Sincerely, The Marquez Family"
