Created in 2001, Royals Charities strives to support children, education, youth baseball/softball, and military in and around the Kansas City area. The foundation accomplishes this mission through financial donations, as well as in-kind support, including memorabilia, tickets and publicity. Under the leadership of the Glass family, Royals Charities has donated more than $7.8 million dollars in grants since its inception.

The 4 Pillars of Royals Charities:

Royals Charities helped provide support in 2013 to children-based charities in the greater Kansas City area including: Special Olympics KC Metro, Variety Children's Charity of Greater Kansas City, The University of Kansas Hospital's Neonatal Medical Home, and Dream Factory.

More than $750,000 has been donated to renovate 64 fields in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Oklahoma and Arkansas since 2006 (with an average matching grant size of $5,000) through the Royalty Fields Program. For more information, please visit royals.com/royaltyfields.
