The IMPACT Awards

Who makes an IMPACT in your state? Vote now to recognize an outstanding nonprofit dedicated to social justice and they could win a $10,000 grant from the Red Sox Foundation!

We are pleased to announce that the IMPACT Awards are returning in 2018! Beginning this year and going forward, we will identify a particular area of focus that embodies one of the values of the Red Sox Foundation. The 2018 IMPACT Awards will be granted to nonprofits that have demonstrated a tangible impact to improving social justice, diversity and inclusivity in the New England community.

To win, a nonprofit must receive the most online votes during the nomination period - that's it! The organizations that receive the top three most votes in each state will win a grant; $10,000 for first place, $3,000 for second place and $2,000 for first place.
