The Chicago White Sox announced cumulative charitable donations of $2.2 million in 2019. Donations include $614,000 in grants to 38 Chicagoland non-profit organizations through the White Sox Community Fund (WSCF), a McCormick Foundation Fund. In addition, Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC) awarded additional grants totaling $107,500 to seven agencies providing services throughout the community.
CWSC also made donations totaling nearly $1.2 million to support the White Sox urban youth baseball initiatives - including the highly regarded Amateur City Elite (ACE) and White Sox Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) programs - and to fund non-profit organizations such as the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the University of Chicago Urban Labs. This year's grant donations, coupled with other charitable donations, move the team's total philanthropic giving to more than $32 million since the inception of CWSC in 1990.
The following 2019 grant recipients from Chicago White Sox Charities and the White Sox Community Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund, were honored in a pregame ceremony presented by Peoples Gas as part of Sox Serve Week on July 27.
