REDS COMMUNITY FUND TELETHON

The Reds Community Fund is proud to partner with Bally Sports Ohio to host the ninth annual Reds Community Fund Telethon presented by PNC Bank at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday, August 17 when the Reds host the Chicago Cubs at 7:10PM. The telecast will begin at 6:00 p.m. Please join us to raise money for the baseball and softball-themed outreach programs of the Reds Community Fund.

Fans are encouraged to make a donation of $100 or more to the Reds Community Fund during the Telethon. In return they will receive an MVP package containing exclusive Reds merchandise and much more. Back in 2021, for a donation of at least $200, the Reds Community Fund will offer Premium MVP packages that will contain an autographed, authenticated Reds mini helmet from select Reds players (fulfilled on a first come, first-served basis; while supplies last).

All MVP Packages and Premium MVP Packages are sold out. Thank you to everyone in Reds Country for your support again this year!

SHIPPING UPDATE: SEPT. 29

The Marty Brennaman Chia Pets have arrived in Cincinnati. MVP and Premium MVP Packages will begin shipping via FedEx on Tuesday, October 5. All orders are expected to be shipped out within 4-5 days. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We appreciate your support and thank you for your patience.

Matching Gift Program

Did you know that your gift could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer? Some companies will even match gifts made by retirees or spouses! If your company has a gift matching program, here are the ways you can make your donation go further for the Reds Community Fund:

  • If your company uses an online gift matching platform, submit a matching gift request through your company’s portal. After this is initiated, they will forward the form to the Reds Community Fund for confirmation. The Community Fund will verify receipt of your matching gift and send along to your company for completion and disbursement.
  • Obtain the appropriate gift matching form from your human resources department. Complete the form and return to the Reds Community Fund via e-mail, fax or mail. The Community Fund will verify receipt of your matching gift and send along to your company for completion and disbursement.
