The Kansas City Royals' impact stretches across the Kansas City community and beyond though its community and charitable initiatives, and this 2016 Royals community report shares the most significant programs that the Royals offer. The Royals focus this impact on children, educational programs in Kansas City, and military heroes.
From donating tickets to Royals games, to inviting foster kids to meet Mike Moustakas in the Moose Lodge, to encouraging perfect attendance, the Royals offer exciting opportunities to get young people involved in baseball. Military service members are honored at every Royals game through the Our Heroes program and significant fundraising efforts were made to support military organizations through Royals Charities, the charitable foundation of the Kansas City Royals.
In addition to community and in-stadium events, Royals Charities made a substantial financial impact in our local community by donating a record $2 million to 135 organizations through its general grants program focusing on children, education, and the military and its Royalty Fields matching grant program to support baseball and softball field renovations in the Midwest.
