Reds Community Fund (Cincinnati Reds)
The Reds Community Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of youth by leveraging the tradition of the Cincinnati Reds and the game of baseball.
The RCF blends together the team's long history of community involvement with a present-day commitment to at-risk kids throughout Greater Cincinnati.
Since its inception in 2001, the Reds Community Fund has used baseball as a vehicle to reach out to kids. As the nonprofit arm of baseball's first professional team, the Community Fund strives to create programming that connects at-risk children with baseball, while creating fundraising programs that connect baseball with the community.
A series of creative, baseball-themed fundraising events and programs provides some of the necessary funding. The 2007 schedule features the "Redlegs Run for Home 5K," "Marty Brennaman Golf Classic," "Father's Day Catch," "Silent Auction Saturdays," Photo Fridays" and other ongoing activities.
Whether it's renovating baseball fields, providing opportunities to kids with disabilities, underwriting expenses for inner-city teams or hosting its "Reds Rookie Success League," the Reds Community Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of youth through baseball.
