The ultimate goal of the Chicago White Sox is to compete for a championship on the field every season. We take great pride in our team's accomplishments on the field, but just as important to the organization are our accomplishments off-the-field. The White Sox recognize and accept the responsibility to serve all Chicagoans in the greater Chicagoland community. Our outreach through Chicago White Sox Charities, the team's philanthropic arm, along with the club's year-round community relations efforts, touch the lives of our neighbors in many different ways.
In addition to the in-kind support provided by the club, White Sox Charities provides financial and emotional support to hundreds of Chicago-based organizations, including those leading the fight against cancer, dedicated to improving the lives of youth through recreation and education, and those offering support to children and families in crisis. With the generous support of White Sox fans, friends and sponsors, White Sox Charities has donated more than $16.5 million since it's inception in 1990, striving to improve the quality of life or Chicagoans of all ages, races and genders.
To the White Sox, winning goes beyond the diamond into the community. The White Sox and White Sox Charities want to inspire, educate and embrace Chicago to create a lasting legacy for future generations.
