The Phillies contribute to the community with monetary and ticket donations.
2017 Grant Recipients
In 2017, more than $1.2 million was awarded by Phillies Charities, Inc. to charitable organizations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and minor league affiliates. Phillies Charities, Inc. serves as the fundraising arm of the Phillies organization and awards grants to a variety of charitable organizations each year. Each of these community heroes took center stage on Dec. 18 at the Phillies Charities, Inc. Holiday Giving Party at Citizens Bank Park, where they were saluted for their charitable efforts. This event also recognized those who were selected to receive a 2017 Phillies Charities, Inc. grant.
- Due to strong fan and partner support, several Phillies events contributed largely to the grant fund. Among them: the Phillies Charities 50/50 Drawing, as well as The Phantastic Auction, an online auction experience featuring unique items and major league experiences, which raised over $106,000 for Phillies Charities,
- 125,000 tickets were donated to local charitable organizations throughout the Philadelphia area, including 40,000 tickets which were donated to members of the military and their families.
