As the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox, the Red Sox Foundation is committed to using the passion fans have for this team to strengthen programs for at-risk children in our community. Proceeds from our events will benefit our Red Sox Scholars and RBI Youth Baseball & Softball cornerstone programs:

The Red Sox Scholars presented by BIDMC is a college scholarship and enrichment program managed by the Red Sox Foundation. With the selection of the newest class in May of 2016, the Red Sox Foundation has opened the doors of opportunity to 262 academically talented, economically disadvantaged students from the Boston Public School District. Selected to the program in middle school, the Red Sox Foundation awards each Scholar a $10,000 college scholarship, redeemable upon enrollment in an accredited college or university and successful completion of the program. In addition to the scholarship funds, becoming a Red Sox Scholar offers students the unique opportunity to participate in a variety of service projects, enrichment activities, and career exploration field trips throughout middle and high school.

The goal of Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) is to increase participation in baseball and softball, encourage school attendance and achievement, develop self-esteem and life skills, instill values of teamwork, tolerance, and respect for others and teach safe and healthy choices to at-risk youth. Organized by the Red Sox Foundation, the RBI program serves 700 inner-city boys and girls, aged 9-18, from Brighton, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Mission Hill, the North and South Ends, Roslindale, Roxbury, South Boston, and West Roxbury. In addition to the sport itself, the Red Sox Foundation program underscores the importance of good decision-making. We seek to ensure that every boy or girl participating in the program will have a stronger sense of themselves and their future potential.
