MiLB CommUNITY First Campaign
In partnership with Feeding America, Minor League Baseball came together in May 2020 to raise funds for local food banks while honoring local heroes risking their lives on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. For every $10 donated through campaign, one ticket to a future MiLB game will be donated to a local hero.
The mission of Minor League Baseball Charities is to give back and to enhance communities that have supported our member clubs for over 100 years. When hardship strikes one of our member cities and surrounding communities, we will be there to provide a positive example that will impact the communities we live and work in.
MiLB Unlimited is a national disability inclusion initiative that strives to serve and empower individuals in our communities with all types of disabilities, including physical, intellectual and developmental.
Since 2016, Minor League Baseball has recognized exemplary students as part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Rising Star Students program. To date, MiLB Charities has awarded more than $160,000 to deserving students heading to college in MiLB communities. The initiative is a continuation of the relationship between MiLB Charities and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, which was established in 2004 along with the creation of the Minor League Baseball Charity Partner Program.

Minor League Baseball Charity Partners
The mission of the Minor League Baseball Charity Partners Program is to provide national exposure for participating charities, expand current relationships between clubs and local chapters and to foster new relationships where none exist.

The American Cancer Society is the newest addition to the program, joining in 2016.
In 2009, Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure was designated as a Homegrown Charity Partner, a special designation for programs that, in large part, have their roots traceable to Minor League Baseball.
