The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation honored 10 different non-profit organizations, including Buckner International, with a total of $100,000 in grants during the #TogetherWe Give Concert on Thursday Night.
The grants will help support 10 organizations that have worked tirelessly throughout 2020. Each organization received a grant for $10,000 to help with their efforts in the community. Grant recipients were chosen for the funds based on their mission and impact in the community.
The recipients were honored at Thursday night’s #TogetherWe Give Concert, presented by Choctaw Casinos & Resorts, featuring national recording artist Eli Young Band. The private socially-distanced event thanked Foundation sponsors for their contributions, as well as highlighted the Foundation’s efforts over the course of 2020.
“2020 has been challenging, but in that darkness, there are points of light. The concert allowed us to honor and celebrate the light that the Foundation, and these 10 extraordinary non-profit organizations, bring to our community,” said Karin Morris, Rangers Senior Vice President of Community Impact, and Executive Director of the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
Financial contributions were helped in part through First Look Tour sales. An MLB Military grant helped fund the USO Spousal Support donation.
Since March, the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation has supported the community in COVID-19 relief efforts. In addition to donating over 4 million meals to over 140,000 individuals, it has also developed and implemented additional funding and support throughout the community.
