The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and the United Way Campaign have officially kicked off. The Metropolitan Basketball League (Metroball) has been approved as a charity to receive donations through these two campaigns.
With the tough economy, our main source of funding was cut off. As a result, we have no other sources of income to continue our programs. Please consider donating to the Metropolitan Basketball League so that we may continue serving the youth of Washington D.C.
For more than a decade, the Metropolitan Basketball League (Metroball) has been a very positive force in the lives of over 500 youths each year in Washington D.C. With After School Basketball Skills Camp/Fitness programs, youth Amateur Athletic Union Basketball Teams (AAU), and our 10 week Youth Summer Basketball Tournament (the New York Ave Classic), we strive to promote a positive, productive, and safe social community through the use of sports and team dynamics.
A tax deductable donation can be made directly to the organization or through:
1) Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) – #25822
2) United Way – #9836
Every Donation Makes A Difference!!!
Metroball is an Approved 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization
