More about Red Sox Foundation
The RSF focuses on five cornerstone social issues: education, cancer research, veterans services, social services, and youth fitness. The foundation leverages broad interest and enthusiasm for the Red Sox, and the history of Fenway Park, to raise funds for these social issues. For example, the organization hosts several events at Fenway (many on the field) to raise money for its supporting organizations. Run to Home Base begins and ends at Fenway, and has raised millions for veteran services. The global World Series Ring Raffle is raising funds for the foundation’s cornerstone issues, due in large part to worldwide interest in owning a piece of Red Sox history. Virtually every RSF fundraising initiative is predicated on community interest in the Red Sox as a team, as an organization and, in the case of Fenway Park, a sports shrine.
The RSF fully embraces the enthusiasm of the Red Sox fans and broader community. The Red Sox are an ingrained part of the New England region and the Foundation feels strongly that is makes perfect sense to leverage its best assets to tackle pressing social issues.
