Scholarship Recap

December 1, 2023

From its inception, The 6-4-3 Foundation’s focus on scholarship assistance programs has been important and strategic to our mission. The foundation has steadily grown its merit-based scholarship, 6-4-3 need-based scholarship, and non-6-4-3 need-based scholarship and grant initiatives.


Since 2014, ten Kelly and Mike Price merit-based scholarships have been awarded to graduating 6-4-3 high school seniors to assist with their college academic expenses.  To date, a total of $15,000 has been disbursed to outstanding applicants inside 6-4-3’s academy.


Since 2014, 45 need-based scholarships have been awarded to 6-4-3 academy players (ages 8-18) through a standard application and eligibility protocol. To date, a total of $45,930 has been granted to qualified players inside 6-4-3’s academy to help with team and/or academy related expenses.


Beginning in 2015, the foundation has granted a total of $8,793 for the benefit of youth athletes outside of the 6-4-3 population. The 6-4-3 Foundation has partnered with two local non-profits, H.A.S. Foundation and The Dave Krache Foundation, to help provide recreational sports opportunities for youth in families facing financial challenges. In addition, the foundation has supported the Marietta Police Athletic League and L.E.A.D. Center for Youth with grants to help with their programming.


With the help of our partners and the support of our community, The 6-4-3 Foundation is working to grow this area of impact. We thank the many individuals, families, and businesses that have donated so generously in recent years to The 6-4-3 Foundation.  In doing so, the above-mentioned scholarship initiatives have been made possible.


The 6-4-3 Foundation, the charitable arm of 6-4-3 DP Athletics, operates as an independent entity. The 6-4-3 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Georgia not-for-profit corporation. The foundation focuses on three primary areas of charitable support: community improvement and outreach efforts, scholarship assistance programs, and volunteer service projects.
