CARDINALS CARE SUMMER GRANT CYCLE TO AID 77 AREA NONPROFITS
Over $172,000 to be Donated Among Area Groups That Serve Youth
ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 14, 2023 – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that Cardinals Care has distributed over $172,000 in grant money to 77 area nonprofit groups that support local kids as part of the organization’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 our players and fans who support Cardinals Care through various fundraising efforts including the Winter Warm-Up, Silent Auctions and 50/50 Raffles year after year, 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.
On Friday, September 15th, the Cardinals will celebrate Roberto Clemente Day and his legacy of philanthropy by recognizing a selection of Cardinals Care grant recipients during a pregame field ceremony. The team also provided game tickets to all 2023 grant recipients as a token of appreciation for their service to kids in the community.
Cardinals Care has provided over $17 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 cardinals.com/grants.
