The Colorado Rockies operate two charities: the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation and the Colorado Rockies Charity Fund, a fund of the McCormick Foundation. Since their inception, the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation and the Colorado Rockies Charity Fund have contributed more than $20 million to community programs in the Rocky Mountain region.
The Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation was formed in 1991 as a public charitable organization with emphasis toward underprivileged and at-risk youth through programs for youth baseball and softball, education and literacy and drug and alcohol-abuse awareness and prevention.
Soon you will be able to show your Rockies pride while supporting the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation with Colorado Rockies license plates. All proceeds from the license plates will benefit the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation.
The Rockies Charity Fund was formed in 1993 with the same targeted areas as the Foundation. The Charity Fund is a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, a national charitable trust whose philanthropic mission is carried out through four program areas: communities, journalism, education and citizenship.
The Rockies' players and staff also contribute directly to community programs and charitable organizations by volunteering their time and participating in more than 200 charitable events each year.
