IRONPIGS CHARITIES MISSION
Established in 2007, before the Lehigh Valley IronPigs ever played an International League game, IronPigs Charities (IPC) was created to support educational and recreational opportunities for Lehigh Valley youth. A year round fundraising effort is made through in-game activities and special events. IPC provides support and financial assistance to charitable organizations in the Lehigh Valley area, many serving children with disabilities or economic disadvantages. Throughout the past 13 years, IPC has donated over $1.2 million dollars to Lehigh Valley to youth serving non-profit organizations.
IronPigs Charities makes financial grants to non-profit, tax exempt 501 (c)(3) organizations in the Lehigh Valley and immediate surrounding areas. IPC will only consider requests that relate to a specific project/program and does not consider requests for general operating expenses. Grants for 2021 will be awarded in the range of $1,000-$10,000. Projects that encompass both youth education and youth recreation will be given greater consideration.
