In 2015, the Red Sox Foundation introduced a new initiative, The IMPACT Awards, which provided Red Sox fans in the surrounding New England states with the opportunity to support their favorite nonprofits by nominating organizations to win one of the available grants. Over the last few years, we have had a broad focus that permitted any nonprofit to be nominated for the IMPACT Award.
This year and in future years, we will change the focus of the IMPACT Awards to support nonprofits with a particular mission and focus. This year, we will commit the award to nonprofits that are dedicated to social justice.
The three nonprofits in each state with the most votes will receive a grant from the Red Sox Foundation! Please see below for the benefits of each grant recipient:
