The IMPACT Awards presented by Ruderman Family Foundation provide fans in New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI and VT) with the opportunity to support their favorite non-profits by nominating organizations to win a grant from a Red Sox Foundation.

As we continue to respond to our communities’ evolving needs and commit to supporting recovery across New England, the Red Sox Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 7th Annual “IMPACT” Awards (Inspiring More Philanthropy Across Charities Together) presented by the Ruderman Family Foundation. The IMPACT Awards provide Red Sox fans in the six New England states with the opportunity to nominate their favorite local non-profit organization for their chance to win a grant from the Red Sox Foundation. At the conclusion of the nomination period, the Red Sox Foundation will name five finalists from each state and give Red Sox Nation the opportunity to vote to decide which deserving non-profit receives the award.

In 2021, the IMPACT Awards will continue to focus on organizations that have demonstrated deep impact in raising awareness and improving the mental health outcomes of the young adults in their community. The organization with the most votes in each state will win a grant; $10,000 for first place, $3,000 for second place and $2,000 for third place. Please find the recognition opportunities below for each tier.
