Be a champion in our community

Washington Nationals Philanthropies recognizes donors who sustain its critical work with membership in the Champions Circle. Members of the Champions Circle believe deeply in the mission of creating a better Washington region through widespread philanthropy that delivers local impact. Members may also support our signature program, the Youth Baseball Academy, which uses the sports of baseball and softball to foster positive character development, academic achievement, and improved health among youth living in D.C.’s most underserved communities.

Support from Champions Circle members this year has helped us feed our community, distribute masks to area schools, and adapt programming at the Youth Baseball Academy to maintain crucial connections with our children.
