Established in 1989, CIC is a self-sustaining charitable organization that concentrates on creative partnerships with select organizations in the community.

Through the years, CIC has raised money at a variety of fundraising events and is aided by the generosity of donors including Cleveland Indians players, coaches, fans, Front Office personnel and corporate partners. Since 1989, CIC has donated more than $10 million to youth-oriented agencies and organizations of Northeast Ohio.
