SABR Giving Circles
SABR’s mission is to foster the study, discussion, and understanding of all aspects of baseball. In order to fulfill this mission, we rely not only on member dues but also gifts from our generous supporters.
Through membership in a SABR Giving Circle, supporters expand our capacity to engage in the three pillars of SABR’s work: research, preservation, and scholarship. They help us realize our vision of becoming the essential community for the world of baseball.
Research Circle – $1,000
Baseball research and recognition of the research is the pillar upon which SABR was founded nearly 50 years ago. Our research committees represent a diverse spectrum of interests, including the BioProject Committee, Baseball and the Arts Research Committee, Statistical Analysis Research Committee, and many more.

Preservation Circle – $2,500
A core function of SABR is to preserve baseball history and baseball research materials for future generations. SABR’s work in preserving baseball history is reflected in our grave marker projects, led by committees that locate 19th Century and Negro League player gravesites and adorn them with headstones, as well as the Minor League Player Database, Major League Baseball Home Run Log, and much more.

Scholar Circle – $5,000
Iconic Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell said: “SABR is the Phi Beta Kappa of baseball, providing scholarship which the sport has long needed. … An excellent way for all of us to add to our enjoyment of the greatest game.” SABR promotes the understanding of the game of baseball through the Baseball Research Journal, events such as the SABR Analytics Conference and the Jerry Malloy Negro League Conference, and through groups such as the Negro Leagues Research Committee, Women in Baseball Research Committee, and the Educational Resources Committee.

Future of the Game Circle – $10,000
