Red Sox Foundation

The Red Sox Foundation (“RSF” or the “Foundation”), the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox, focuses in serving the health, education, recreation and social service needs of children, families in need, and wounded veterans across New England. The Foundation strives to capture the passion of Red Sox fans and transform it into a vehicle for positive change in the community. RSF accomplishes this through partnerships with local communities, active involvement from Red Sox players, and strong dedication from the team’s ownership group led by Principal Owner John Henry, Chairman Tom Werner and President/CEO Larry Lucchino.


The Red Sox Foundation does an excellent job of leveraging its assets, including cash and ticket donations, autographs, player appearances, while keeping costs low, which has resulted in $52 million of donations over the past 10 years. The key areas of caution are the current lack of transparency by RSF and increasing employee costs.
