UMPS CARE Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit established by Major League Baseball (MLB) umpires to provide financial, in-kind and emotional support for America’s youth and families in need. Through our youth-based programs, professional baseball umpires enrich the lives of at-risk youth and children coping with serious illness by providing memorable baseball experiences, supporting pediatric medical care, and raising awareness for foster care children waiting to be adopted.
What We Do
UMPS CARE provides financial, in-kind, and emotional support through the following programs:
• BLUE for Kids: a program that brings Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences to children coping with cancer and other serious illness.
• BLUE Crew Tickets: a program that provides memorable baseball experiences for children awaiting adoption and at-risk youth in mentoring programs.
• All-Star Scholarship: an initiative that offers financial support towards college education for children adopted from foster care system.
