Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Racial Equity Grant Program

In response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and so many others who have perished unnecessarily, the Rays Baseball Foundation and Rowdies Soccer Fund created the Racial Equity Grant Fund to build power within communities that have been historically overlooked because of systemic racism.

The Rays Baseball Foundation and Rowdies Soccer Fund are committed to upholding equity and inclusion and will be committing $100,000 annually in the fight against systemic racism. Proposals for grants will be accepted from nonprofit organizations throughout the nine counties in the Tampa Bay region. Applicants must submit an application via the online form.
