IMPACT Awards

Presented by the Manning Family Foundation
2024 IMPACT Awards

The Red Sox Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 10th Annual "IMPACT" Awards (Inspiring More Philanthropy Across Charities Together) presented by the Manning Family Foundation. Since 2015, the IMPACT Awards have distributed over $650,000 to nonprofits throughout New England. The IMPACT Awards provide Red Sox fans in the six New England states with the chance to nominate their favorite, most impactful local nonprofit organization for their opportunity to win a grant from the Red Sox Foundation. In 2024, the IMPACT Awards will focus on organizations that are supporting research and bringing awareness, advocacy, and services to the Type 1 Diabetes community.

At the conclusion of the nomination period, the Red Sox Foundation and Manning Family Foundation will judge nominations to determine five finalists from each state (30 total) and give Red Sox Nation the opportunity to vote to decide which top 3 nonprofits each receive a prize (18 total). The three organizations with the most votes in each state will win a grant: $15,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $3,000 for third place. Please find additional recognition opportunities below for each tier.

New this year, the nonprofit organization receiving the most votes overall will receive recognition as the IMPACT Regional Champion, which includes an additional grant award of $15,000 and other marketing opportunities (1 total).
