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 the spread of COVID-19 directly impacts non-profit organizations across New England, the Red Sox Foundation will now be accepting nominations for the 6th Annual “IMPACT” Awards (Inspiring More Philanthropy Across Charities Together) presented by Ruderman Family Foundation.  The IMPACT Awards provide Red Sox fans  with the opportunity to nominate their favorite local non-profit organization in New England for their chance to win a grant from the Red Sox Foundation.

Each year the theme of the Award will change to respond to the evolving need of our communities while staying alighted to the Red Sox Foundation mission. During these unprecedented times dealing with COVID-19 it’s important now more than ever to take care of our mental health.  As such, the IMPACT Awards this year will focus on organizations that have demonstrated an impact on raising awareness and improving the mental health outcomes of the people in their community. Fans can nominate their favorite nonprofit charity that satisfies this year’s theme and vote!


Nomination Period: Monday, May 4 to Monday, May 31, 2020

Finalist Named:  Tuesday, June 9, 2020
