Cardinals Care Summer Grant Cycle To Aid 81 Area Nonprofits

Over $168,000 to be Donated Among Area Groups That Serve Youth

ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 13, 2022 – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that Cardinals Care will distribute over $168,000 in grant money to 81 area nonprofit groups that support local kids as part of the team’s summer grant cycle.  The grants will be used to fund tangible items, one-time capital expenses and special supplies or purchases that directly benefit children.

“Thanks to the generosity of our players and fans who support Cardinals Care through various fundraising efforts including Silent Auctions and 50/50 Raffles, we are able to provide grants to well deserving organizations that serve kids in our community,” said Michael Hall, Vice President, Community Relations and Executive Director of Cardinals Care.

Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community—both on and off the baseball field.  Cardinals Care has provided over $12 million in grants to non-profits since 1997.  There are two grant cycles each year, one in spring and one in summer. Organizations that have been a 501c3 for at least a year and are interested in applying for a Cardinals Care grant can find more information at
