Dare To Dream

The foundation plans to finance equipment for those who are in need, as well as arranging transportation to the various ball fields where games are taking place, for those who are without.

Red Sox Foundation

Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of children, families, veterans, and our communities in need by improving their health, education, and recreational opportunities. Immediately after taking ownership, John Henry and his partners also founded — and funded — the Red Sox Foundation, which has become the largest and one of the fastest-growing team charities in Major League Baseball. Though a relative newcomer to the New England philanthropic community, it has won numerous awards for its imaginative outreach and impact, including the 2009 national “Best Sports Charity” award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Sports Philanthropy Project. In 2010, the Foundation was recognized by Major League Baseball with the inaugural “Commissioner’s Award for Philanthropic Excellence” for the Red Sox Scholars program, which provides college scholarships to inner-city Boston youth. Supported through generous donations from John Henry and Tom Werner and their partners, as well as corporate sponsors and fans attending fundraising events, the Red Sox Foundation has made a significant impact on the lives of those it serves.
