The scoreboards were made possible with a $5,000 grant to SBSL from MJM Electric “Operation Round UP”, a program funded by MJM Electric participants by rounding up their monthly electric bills.

The SBSL made this statement: "These funds are used exclusively to fund community betterment groups in MJM Electric service areas. Furthermore, SBSL would like to thank the City of Staunton and Staunton Township for their matching contributions and man hours needed for installation to make the scoreboards possible. Livingston Pipe and Tube of Staunton generously donated the posts that the scoreboards are mounted upon."
