Brewers players committed to providing financial support to the community

|

MILWAUKEE, WI - Brewers Community Foundation, the official charitable arm of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, raises financial support for nonprofit organizations in Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin.   These organizations provide critical services in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs. This year, BCF is proud to announce that 100% of Brewers players have committed to providing financial or in-kind support to the community. 

"I am extremely proud of Milwaukee Brewers baseball players," said Cecelia Gore, Executive Director of Brewers Community Foundation. "They recognize the meaningful impact they can have by contributing to the community. The programs supported by players have been phenomenal."

Through various community initiatives during the season, Brewers players, coaches, alumni, wives and staff members provide continuous support to organizations in the Greater Milwaukee area, including monetary contributions, time and special appearances.

Earlier this month, the Brewers announced a new community initiative called "Beyond the Diamond," which features a series of community outreach events that will take place throughout the season. The program is built around a partnership between Brewers Community Foundation, players, coaches, alumni, wives and team personnel working hands-on in the community.

"Beyond the Diamond" events this year will include "S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day," hospital visits, a playground build, and a Habitat for Humanity project. Each month from May through August, all players, coaches and team personnel will be divided into groups to attend at least one of the following community outreach events:

  • May 8 (Basic Needs) Habitat Build-a-Thon
  • May 21 (Education) S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day
  • June 6 (Health) Children's Hospital Visit
  • July 22 (Recreation) KaBoom Playground Build 
  • August 20 (Health) VA Hospital Visit

Additional information on each program will be distributed prior to each event. For more information, please visit Brewers.com/community.
