The ultimate goal of the Chicago White Sox is to compete for a championship 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. Grant funding from Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC) and the White Sox Community Fund (WSCF), a McCormick Foundation fund, has delivered more than $32 million to life-changing causes and non-profit organizations across the city, striving to make Chicago a better place to live, work and play.
Through the grant giving program, CWSC and WSCF, support Chicago-based agencies that provide critically important services to our community's underserved and marginalized residents. Qualified nonprofit organizations are invited to participate in the grant review process.
