Featured Hero of the Month
April 2018 Hero of the Month:
The Brewers Community Foundation is the official charity of Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club. Their mission is to harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin. Their focus is on funding efforts that strategically extend financial support to nonprofits that provide quality programming in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs, with a particular focus on low-income and disadvantaged youth and their families. They support approximately 200 nonprofit organizations, including City Year, ARCW, Sharp Literacy, Milwaukee Film Festival, Milwaukee Public Library, the MACC Fund and Sojourner Family Peace Center – and that is why we are proud to call the Milwaukee Brewers our Hero of the Month!
Over the past eight years, Brewers Community Foundation has generated more than $27 million to support local nonprofits in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs. Every player on the team's 2018 roster, along with investors, Brewers Wives, fans, sponsors, members of the front office and other supporters, contributed to the charitable arm of the Milwaukee Brewers through financial contributions and involvement in events.
The Brewers Community Foundation helps fundraise with various initiatives throughout the year, including the 50/50 Game Day Raffle, Brewers Community Foundation Week, An Evening With Hank Aaron, the Brewers Mini-Marathon presented by Sendik's, 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk, Hitting for the Cycle Bike Ride, Drive for Charity and the Leadership Council.
In addition to raising money, the Brewers Community Foundation is involved in numerous community outreach efforts. In 2017, Brewers Community Foundation and the Brewers teamed up for a Bicycle Build, where players and front office staff partnered with kids to build and donate 100 bikes. In addition, players and staff joined the Foundation in staging a Habitat for Humanity build which provided several new homes to local families. Brewers Community Foundation and the Brewers also supported local Little Leagues including Beckum Stapleton Little League and the Felix Mantilla Little League.
