Rye Little League cannot exist without donations from our community. If you are interested in donating to Rye Little League we would appreciate any monetary donation. While we will attempt to honor your request we cannot guarantee that your donation will be used as requested. We can guarantee that as a 501c3 organization 100% of your donation is used to better the league.
In the past three years we have completed the following field improvements:
Over $5,000.00 in Field Improvements at
Improvements included new bases at the Flash Jenness Memorial Field, new conditioners and new top soil on the field. We have also re-seeded the outfield in preparation for the 2013 hosting of the District II tournament. Many man hours and preparation were needed and many of those hours donated by Jeff Carroll Landscaping and Profile Lawns both of Rye.
Flash Jenness Memorial Field in the fall of 2010:
Over $25,000 for the Batting Cage in 2009
Monetary donations from over 50 families in our community as well as corporate support to make our dream of a new batting cage come through at the Flash Jenness Memorial Field. This included removal of the old batting cage, prep work for the new cage with all prep materials donated by Pike Industries of Portsmouth, NH and the entire site was funded outside of funds raised for the league in a special donation campaign just for this project!

Rye Recreation Surrounding Grounds Improvements
Single or Partial Donation: $25,000.00*
Last year Rye Little League was proud to be a very small part of the permanent beautification of our Park. Rye Recreation along with several other donators created a beautiful playground that our children will be able to enjoy for year.! We'd like to continue our efforts to improve the surrounding areas with some significant exterior ideas for the Rye Recreation Building that would include:
- A stone retaining wall around the Rye Recreation Building that would be filled with perennials
- A stone or brick walkway from the snack shack area to the playground
- A new retaining wall for the current perennial garden (the current rail road ties leave tar stains on the children's clothes)
- Rework the area behind the score's booth and around both sides of the bleachers to make the area safer as children run and play (eliminate the steep incline with additional materials brought in perhaps some material removed based on landscapers recommendations and Rye Recreation Department approvals).
*100% of your donation would be dedicated to improvements suggested to the Rye Recreation Department. All improvements must be made by the Rye Recreation Department thus our donation would be for the specific project/projects approved. We would be happy to consider any and all suggestions and work with any organization who is willing to donate money, time and manpower to this endeavor.
