The True Blue Foundation is the non-profit arm of Northern Colorado Sports Officials- an organization committed to serving the Northern Colorado Community for over 10 years. The donations that are not raised during events like the golf tournament primarily come through donations from officials that give small portions of their game checks, such as 10% of their pay, $3 a game, or $40 a weekend.
True Blue was born in 2012 as a one-time event to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Foundation as a gesture of respect to a former NCSO umpire killed in Al Anbar, Iraq in 2007.
The event was such a success, that a group of NCSO baseball and softball officials decided to formalize the program.
True Blue's mission is to raise money for local non-profits that provide educational and preventative services to community youth, and who do so while offering reduced or free costs to those youth who cannot afford to pay. Particularly, True Blue supports those organizations who- through activity, support, mentorship, and empowerment, offer programs that allow our youth to overcome adversity and learn life skills that may otherwise be unattainable.
In 2019, True Blue is proud to support:
- The Greeley/Evans Youth League Free Baseball and Softball Program
- Veteran Support Programs and Organizations
- Sexual Assault Victim Advocate Center SART PEERS Program
- The Children's Hospital
Funds to support these important agencies are generated through:
- Community Donations and Grants
- Fundraising Events (such as our annual golf tournament)
- Umpire/Referee Donation of game fees to project.
True Blue hopes to raise $30,000 in 2019 through these efforts, providing 100 percent of all funds raised directly to these organizations or our efforts to support them. The Board of Directors are all volunteers, and receive zero compensation for their efforts. True Blue Board Members:
