McElroy Park Field Renovation Donations

McElroy Park Field Renovation Donations

Every gift to the Campaign is important and essential for reaching our goal. While your gift is a personal one, there are many options you might consider for your contribution.  Please see the list below on ways you can donate.


We ask you to please consider donating to the project, we are hoping to raise over $750,000 to name one of the fields in honor of Tom Gould (TG) and the Gould Family.  TG and the Gould Family’s contribution to baseball in Jamestown is immeasurable and we would like to honor TG and his family for the many years of devotion to youth baseball in Jamestown.

Our goal is to raise the remaining $2 million needed for the South phase, including Gould Field, of the project and break ground in the Fall of 2023.
