Who makes an IMPACT in New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, and VT)? Nominate your favorite nonprofit that have demonstrated an impact on raising awareness and improving mental health outcomes in their community and they could win a $10,000 grant from the Red Sox Foundation!

What are the IMPACT Awards?

As the spread of COVID-19 directly impacts non-profit organizations across New England, the Red Sox Foundation will now be accepting nominations for the 6th Annual “IMPACT” Awards (Inspiring More Philanthropy Across Charities Together) presented by Ruderman Family Foundation. The IMPACT Awards provide Red Sox fans with the opportunity to nominate their favorite local non-profit organization for their chance to win a grant from the Red Sox Foundation. Out of all the nominees received, Red Sox Foundation will name 5 finalists from each state. Then it’s time for Red Sox Nation to vote to decide which deserving non-profit receives the award.

Each year the theme of the IMPACT Awards presented by Ruderman Family Foundation will change to respond to the evolving needs of our communities while staying aligned to the Red Sox Foundation mission. During these unprecedented times dealing with COVID-19 it’s important now more than ever to take care of our mental health. As such, the IMPACT Awards this year will focus on organizations that have demonstrated an impact on raising awareness and improving the mental health outcomes of the people in their community.

The organization with the most votes in each state will win a grant; $10,000 for first place and $2,500 for second place. Please see below for the benefits of each grant recipient.
