IMPACT Awards

The IMPACT Awards provide fans in the surrounding New England states with the opportunity to support their favorite non-profits in their home states by casting their vote to help decide which organizations will win one of the available awards.

In 2015, the Red Sox Foundation introduced a new initiative, The IMPACT Awards, which provided Red Sox fans in the surrounding New England states with the opportunity to support their favorite nonprofits by nominating organizations to win one of the available grants. Over the last few years, we have had a broad focus that permitted any nonprofit to be nominated for the IMPACT Award.

This year and in future years, we will change the focus of the IMPACT Awards to support nonprofits with a particular mission and focus. In 2018, the award was committed  to nonprofits that are dedicated to social justice.

The three eligible charitable organizations in each of the five New England states surrounding Massachusetts (CT, ME, NH, RI, VT) that receive the most votes will receive an IMPACT Award. In total, fifteen organizations will share a contribution of $75,000. Please contact redsoxfoundation@redsox.com with any further questions.
