Play every home game to win big for charity! The Royals Charities 50/50 Raffle presented by Edelman & Thompson is an in-stadium fundraiser in which one lucky fan can win big at every home game in 2018! In 2017, Royals Charities raised $780,000 from the proceeds of the 50/50 Raffle to support charities that focus on children, education, youth baseball/softball field renovations and military families across the Kansas City area.
Commemorate a special occasion by displaying a Gameday Greeting on the Kauffman Stadium LED Left-Field and Right-Field Video display -- along the outfield wall -- during a Royals home game. Gameday Greetings can be purchased online and each includes a photo recreated after the game date. The photo will be emailed within 4 weeks after the game date. Each Gameday Greeting can be purchased for $55, with net proceeds benefiting Royals Charities.

Royals Charities is expanding Kauffman Stadium's Legacy Brick Program in celebration of the Royals 50th Season! 50 seasons of never giving up, playing with heart, and years of special baseball moments have led to this opportunity for Royals fans to capture a favorite memory and be a permanent part of this milestone in Royals baseball history! Each brick donation will benefit Royals Charities.
Every 21 seconds, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes. To raise awareness, Sun Life is once again teaming up with Royals Charities for the Strikeout Diabetes fundraising campaign, which benefits a different Kansas City-area nonprofit organization each year. In 2018, Strikeout Diabetes will support the American Diabetes Association - Kansas City's efforts to prevent and cure diabetes and to support those impacted by the disease. For each strikeout thrown by a Kansas City pitcher during the regular season, Sun Life will donate $21.
The Kansas City Royals join their players in supporting those affected by recent natural disasters and pledged to various organizations including the American Red Cross & Heart to Heart International in support of relief efforts from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and the devastating earthquake in Mexico. Royals players, coaches and broadcasters have been active in showing support for their home countries and cities, and encourage Royals fans to join in their relief efforts.
