MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers are proud to team up with corporate partners who are committed to supporting numerous nonprofit organizations, including the Club’s charitable arm, Brewers Community Foundation (BCF). The 2024 season brings a variety of charitable activations seen throughout American Family Field and in the community, a series of initiatives that are part of the Brewers and BCF’s “Beyond the Diamond” campaign.

Associated Bank and BCF Cheer for Here Campaign Associated Bank and BCF are pleased to partner for a fourth year to support minority-owned, women-owned and veteran-owned businesses across the state of Wisconsin. Through a joint community program, numerous Wisconsin-based small businesses will receive a $5,000 grant to support their growing business needs. The grants are provided through the Business Council and the Wisconsin Ethnic and Diverse Business Coalition. In addition to financial support, each business will receive access to tailored banking expertise from Associated Bank, including industry-leading products, services and financial education. Further, during the 2024 season, the businesses will receive visibility at American Family Field and in the community via various marketing and public relations campaigns.

Northwestern Mutual supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation – All season long, Northwestern Mutual will team up with the Milwaukee Brewers to help raise awareness and fight childhood cancer. Northwestern Mutual’s “Research Batted In To Cure Childhood Cancer” program will celebrate every RBI by the Brewers throughout the 2024 season. For every RBI, Northwestern Mutual is funding five hours of childhood cancer research through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). This will be showcased throughout the ballpark, Bally Sports and ancillary activation. On select dates, the first 150 fans who make a $20 donation at the Alex’s Lemonade Stand kiosk on the Field Level concourse will receive an exclusive photo card of the special guest – a Brewers alum or other notable Wisconsin athlete – with the opportunity to have it signed.

During the series against the Colorado Rockies (Sept. 6-8), Northwestern Mutual and the Brewers will host Childhood Cancer Awareness Weekend and donate $1 for every ticket sold to ALSF. Fans in attendance over that weekend will be encouraged to round up their total for purchases at concessions stands and the Team Store to further support the cause. Furthermore, a Childhood Hero of the Game will be celebrated at each of these three games with a ceremonial first pitch and additional VIP experiences. Fans everywhere who are interested in supporting the cause can donate online here. All proceeds benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to help fund research to cure childhood cancer.

Waste Management Earth Day and Beach Clean Up Events – Waste Management and the Milwaukee Brewers are committed to participating in two (2) community clean up events during the 2024 season.
