For more than 20 years, the Players Trust has used its collective voice, resources, and passion to make a positive impact in the lives of millions of people around the world.

MLB Players understand the importance of teamwork, and that together as one team through the Players Trust, their community impact can be multiplied.

With the world in a perpetual time-out during this incredibly hard time, the Players Trust COVID-19 Relief program will continue to support the causes and communities important to our players that have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. The Trust is stepping up to this crisis with financial contributions as well as with the kind of support money can’t buy—lending the power of their players to expand the voice of these initiatives to drive greater impact. 

HEROES ON THE FRONT LINES

Protecting the people that protect us. 

MLB Players are passionate about supporting local hospitals and healthcare workers on the front lines. As a result, the Players Trust has aligned with Protect The Heroes, a national initiative to raise desperately needed funds for critical hospital resources to support the needs of physicians, nurses, and caregivers who are treating coronavirus patients.

Every dollar raised from Protect The Heroes goes directly to the donor’s choice of local hospital or healthcare organization to fund the fight against COVID-19.

Protect The Heroes is powered by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), The Creative Coalition (TCC), and the American Hospital Association (AHA).

SMART SUPPORT FOR EDUCATION

Providing aid to educators, students, and families so learning never stops.

As educators and students adjust to the “new normal” in the wake of school closures, distance learning and associated resources are crucial, especially in underserved communities. Without reliable access to internet-powered classrooms, participation in remote lessons can be difficult to those affected by the “digital divide.” The Players Trust is dedicated to supporting the organizations that provide access to educational resources.

COMBATING FOOD INSECURITY

Putting food on the table for those who need it most.

MLB Players Trust is dedicated to supporting food insecurity efforts in our players’ hometowns and countries. No one should go hungry during the COVID-19 pandemic. With school closures, job disruptions, and health risks, millions of Americans will turn to food banks for much-needed support.
